I have been so inspired this past month with all the wonderful posts and ideas here! I decided to attempt at making my friend's little girl Dora's Backpack for her third birthday. I did buy a backup, because I attempted this without a pattern, and because I can't really sew! But yay! I can return the store bought one! There are many mistakes and imperfections, but there is a lot of heart! And the little girl didn't seem to notice my mistakes! As a working single mom, this really was an accumulation of many midnight work a thons! But I think it was worth it!
