Hello All! I am on tour again! Woohoo, I’m beginning to feel like a rock star and I can’t say I mind. I’m hanging out with oneThimble today as they have just launched their #8 issue!! OT is an amazing e-zine for those who sew, are thinking about sewing, or have someone who would like a great gift!! It’s chocked full of articles, how to’ s, and great patterns!!
I have recently become an affiliate for OT and I am so honored to be posting today about a great pattern in issue #8, The Little Collector Backpack from Swoodson Says.
Colin is our little collector. He is forever gathering random treasures and stuffing them in his pockets, or the couch cushions! So this bag is perfect for him. I choose the cool fabric because his father is a paramedic and he just loves all things “wow-wow” ,as he puts it. Every time he hears those sirens he gets excited.
The pattern has grommets for the rope to flow through but I opted for button holes. Well truth be told my grommets and I are no longer on speaking terms!! Let’s just leave it at that and not talk about user error!! I added a placket to give the area a bit more strength and I am pleased with the detail it adds.
He loves to mess around in our garden so I wasn’t at all surprised when he donned his new sack and headed there straight away. He can play forever there, finding gems among the dirt.
The smart cookie that he is he remembered me telling him all about the mesh bottom. I told him all the dirt would be left behind and only his treasures would linger. Here he is trying out that cool feature.
The Little Collector Backpack is a wonderful pattern. It has very easy to follow instructions with lots of pictures to help you along the way. I really enjoyed sewing it up, it’s a fairly quick sew. I am so pleased with the final results.
If you like this pattern be sure to check out what the others on the tour are showing off. There are some really great patterns in Issue #8.
