I made a new backpack while in Oregon, for Landon and his start at Kindergarten.
Although I had no pattern, the inspiration was here. The outside is a heavy gray canvas and I used a medium weight interfacing on the front, back and flap to give it structure.
It is now known as The Harry Potter Backpack because of the owl and moon fabric which lines the inside, inside flap, and straps. Plus, we have to make it sound cool because he's entering that age where he wants commercialized products more and more.
School starts at the end of the month!
