We are quarantined to the house for a bit until the bugs in Wren's throat (as he puts it) go away, so I got a chance to do some sewing!
This book has tons of great sewing projects, 24 to be exact. I saw the Simple Drawstring Backpack and immediately decided that Wren needed one to start kindergarten with. Violet would need one too, of course!
It is a nice basic design. Lotta Jansdotter says that although this is a simple pattern, you should allow a day for this project, which was fairly accurate. I made these two assembly line style and it took me most of an afternoon and part of the evening. I did all the cutting and ironing first and then sewed them up. There were a few type-o's, but nothing that stumped me. Lotta suggests that this is a project for a beginner that is ready for a challenge and I do agree.
I think they turned out super cute, now I hope they are super useful!
