    This looks great! Is it easy to find waxed cotton? And is it easy to sew with? Cheers, Sarah

      Hey Sarah,

      I live in central London and Shepherds Bush market is great for waxed cottons. Its absolutely lovely to work with as it has a stiffness which makes its nice and stable to sew.

      The only down side is that if you make a mistake the needle does leave quite an obvious puncture mark in the fabric, so lots of practise needed before starting on the final fabrics :)

      Thanks so much!

      I drafted the patterns myself, starting with basic blocks and for the bag, just started off with rectangles and squares!

      Photos of the rucksacks are coming up!
