I waited for months for my library to get a copy of Little Things to Sew. In the end I broke down and bought it and I'm glad I did! It's a great book, filled with projects I can't wait to make. This is a variation of the penguin backpack that I made for my niece. It will coordinate with her quilt, bag keeper and diaper and wipes case. Hopefully my brother and his wife like this fabric, I've never actually asked them, lol! But, really what's not to like?
The main body is Far Far Away II, the piping and lining is gabardine. It's my first time doing piping and it definately takes a few extra steps but I love how it finishes it off!
My only regret is that I chickened out of my original plan and didn't add batting to the body of the bag. I was worried about having too many layers to stitch through but it would have made the bag less floppy.
