Oliver + S Backpack
The temperatures here have been over 100 degrees and the heat sucks the energy right out of me. This may be the reason I haven't been up to sewing much lately. I did recently take the time to make the backpack out of the book, Oliver + S Little Thinks to Sew. I like the book but the only complaint I have with it is you have to trace the patterns because the ones in the book are double sided. If you cut a pattern out of the book you will mess the pattern on the other side up. Below are some pictures of my E's backpack. It took me two days working a few hours each day to complete it. The most time consuming part was tracing the patterns. The lining of the bag was made out of one of my husband's old shirts.
