I made this for a 4-H trip I'm going on to Washington D.C. I needed a bag that fit the size requirements (max. 14" wide x 13" high x 4" deep) so I can take it through all the monuments. Its based loosely on craftyorange's "hipster-y backpacks".

Its made with red canvasy stuff, Marvel fabric, and faux leather. The straps are old backpack straps covered in fabric. The pocket has a zipper and leather on the inside. The final dimensions are 8" wide x 11" high x 6" deep (it looks like 4" when its flat but is bigger when full; hopefully they won't mind Tongue)

Here it is:

Front w/ Flap (this one's most true-to-color):

Front w/o Flap:


Inside (it's pretty spacious):

Pocket - I forgot to make the pattern right-side up on the bottom half Sad

C&C welcome!

It looks very good-nevermind about the pocket, every article should have a quirk!

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

It looks lovely and I'm happy to see I'm not the only one who loves superheroes. Also, it's such a busy fabric that I think you have to be looking very closely to even realize the bottom half of the pocket is upside down. I certainly didn't see it until you pointed it out, I was just impressed by the ace placement of Hulk on the top half. Cheesy
