So school starts back on Monday so that means I have to crank out all my sewing projects I didn't finish over the summer this weekend (I have learned the hard way not
to do any
sewing projects over the school semester). Since I have become a more avid semstress over the summer I decided to make all the little pouches and what nots for my backpack instead of paying out the nose at the store.
Since I have longer classes I found it handy to bring little things like a granola bar or string cheese with me to munch on in class should I get hungry (and no matter if I eat before class I always get hungry in the middle). The problem I found last semester is that I could never find my snack when I wanted it and got strange looks from people as a rummaged around in the pocket like it's Mary Poppin's carpet bag and eventually had take everything out of it to find the string cheese I desperately needed to have. So the solution is to make a snack pouch to hold all of my snaking needs. I used some awesome shark fabric I have been holding onto so it will be easy to spot in my backpack:
Now usually when I show my husband what I made his response it typically: "Does it explode?" or "That's not the chainmaile I ordered." This time it was different. He instantly said "Do you have any more of that shark material?" Of course I did so he wanted a new dice bag to take with him when he goes to his sister's house to play Dungeons and Dragons (I can't go anymore...she got 2 cats and I am allergic to them
). He was about due for a new one seeing that the one he currently has was made by his mom for a Christmas gift when he was 12. I wasn't going to use a lining, but he does love Batman and I finally cut into the Batman pj bottoms that were beyond repair and used that for the lining:
