Sadly, I couldn't find that piece of fluorite... I know I have it somewhere... *ahem* Probably under some pile of random crafting stuff.
(advance apologies for the below cross-posting, and for image overdose...)
I took the opportunity to finish a PURPLE MONSTER BACKPACK! Yes, that's right folks! A monster bag with a twist! I made it for a coworker's little girl who is just two or three years old and loves Dora the Explorer. As soon as she got it, she apparently started hugging it and crooning, "Backpack, Backpack." (Backpack is the name of Dora's... what else... backpack. )
Inside, a silky white lining. Please ignore the bad sewing, thanks.
The back, with straps of white nylon.
Obligatory action shot (I know the straps are way too small for me, haha.)
I'll see if I can get a picture of her with it. I feel great, I love giving handmade things to people, especially since it's a pretty young, cash-strapped family. <3 Thank you, Craftster.
