They say if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.
That being said I have a list of things that I am GOING to sew. You heard me say it here.
Well, that's my plan anyway.
All Aboard Navy
Toddler Backpack for my Little Man who started day care one day a week and loves it.
This is the Made by Rae pattern which I bought today. I've seen some great bags made up in this pattern and it's a bargain at $6US.
Gotta love how our dollar is going strong against the greenback.
Hunky Dory Cream
Same backpack for Little Miss who will cry the house down if she doesn't get a new bag either.
I really love the pinks and musky colours in the picture.
It took me half a day to pick out the perfect fabric on-line at Kelani. I just didn't want to buy something that I wasn't going to be happy with and I have a budget to consider. That being said I am hoping that I have enough in my stash to make up the rest of the bag but I'm sure I need to find nice piping and medium interfacing to use on the bags.
I'm so excited and hubby seems to like the pattern too. He should be because he wasn't happy with the purple (girly?) Dora "Backpack" character bag that Little Man was taking to daycare, hence my plans to make him a suitable "boyish one" ... (men).
Now I'm just so anxious to get started but I'm not going to rush them. They will definately be a labour of love.
