To Hat-and-Bag-Lady ~yes, I made him a pair of PJs from the dinosaur fabric...believe I got it at Walmart.  He's already outgrown them though. Smiley

Thank you all for your kind words and compliments.  Thankfully, my husband is home safe now.   Smiley  As an Army wife, I appreciate everyone's support for the troops...we don't have to like the war but it is so important to support our military. They see and do things known of us wish to ever experience...they continue to need our support and prayers. We're still losing soldiers and families are still going through their toughest times ever...I hope we never forget them. Ok, I didn't mean to be so serious...hope I didn't make anyone uncomfortable. Again, thank you so much for your support.   Smiley

Thanks. I actually didn't use a pattern. I just make it up as I go.  It's basically 2 square or rectangle pieces sewn together. I quilted the exterior and added a bunch of pockets to the liner. I did make a bookbag out of my hubby's BDUs for my son...here are pics of that:

I just made these two bags out of Army uniforms.  The ACU one was made from my hubby's uniform that he wore in Iraq. The other one is made from my brothers reserve uniform from 20 years ago for my mom.  Grin  I've always liked bags that I've seen other ladies carrying and figured out I could make my own.  I lined it with a heavy stabilizer and batting...made it very durable.  Hope you all like.

Thanks everyone...I just finished my bag. I LOVE it.  Just in time too, we are moving next week and taking a month vacation, so it'll come in handy.  I think I'll have craft withdrawals!! Smiley It wasn't as bad as I expected.  I did make my own piping which I found to be the toughest part along with sewing all the layers together. But as long as I took my time, it wasn't too bad.  I didn't put metal feet on it though. I was too worried I'd mess it up...maybe the next one. I'll try to post a picture but I'm not sure how.
