Colts Neck, New ...
This is my book bag. I needed a new bag for school and because I’ve been into making rather than buying I thought I’de try making a back pack.
I wasn’t sure untill it was done if it would work – but I’m really happy with it.
It has one big compartment, a pocket from my computer, a smaller pocket on the front and a pocket on each side. The back is padded and so are the straps.
Canvas, flannel, some foam, and hardware – $20-25 worth of stuff. (if you count the needles I broke maybe like $30-35.)
No real pattern – however I used a scaled ruler to make a scaled down drawing so I’d know how to cut the pieces.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
