My sister was that impress by the rucksack I made for my nephew (her son) she ordered one for her little girl for Christmas.  Grin

She picked the XOXOXO the cat fabric and we were going to make the bag in denim but once I got the cat fabric it didn't look quite right. Luckily I had some lovely grey cord sitting around that matched perfectly!

I then had to decide what to do on the front pocket so I copied one of the cats heads and appliqued it in felt  Grin

The pics aren't great because it was dark when I took them, but here we go:-

That is just awesome. Can I ask how you managed to get the lining to fit so snug in the bag itself? I always seem to get the lining to be loose.

I always cut the lining the same size as the front pieces but then sew them a smidge smaller. So if it is a 1/2" seam I sew the lining a tiny bit more than 1/2" Does that make sense?

Oh, that would make a lot more sense! Thank you, I will try this out next time I am making a bag!
