HALLELUJAH! My holiday crafting is finally done, as of 2 A.M. this morning Tongue. Some of you may have seen my superhero knapsack awhile back. Well, since I made it I've been getting tons of requests for them. I made four for my cousins as Christmas presents--- three small and one large (for an example of a large one, check this out)

Teaser:


This one is for my cousin Wesley. His is just like mine but with black duck cloth:


This one is for my new step-cousin Kyle. His is a little more conservative:

I really wish I would've done a simple square pattern in white on the outside, sort of like the next one, but alas, I forgot Sad

Here is the one for Brianna:

That's probably the worst hand-embroidered B ever, but she won't mind Tongue
the plaid is brown and teal, it's kind of hard to see

And the most complicated one goes to my cousin Hannah. She needed a larger bag she could use at college because her old, store-bought knapsack was falling apart. Prepare yourselves for picture overload:

Front:


W/O Flap:


Back:


Inside:


With stuff:



The small ones each have one large compartment, a 5"x5" zipper pocket, a magnetic closure, and a round bottom. They measure 8" wide x 11" high x 6" deep.

The large one has a large compartment, three inner lining pockets, a 10"x7" zipper pocket, two (differently sized) elastic bottle pockets, two snap-closure flap pockets, two buckle closures, and a semi-structured rectangular bottom. It measures 10" wide x 16" high x 8" deep.

C&C is welcomed and encouraged Cheesy. Because of the amount of requests I've had for these bags, I've been thinking about starting an Etsy store. What do you think? Would you buy one?

Here is my other Christmas sewing project: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=418500.0

Wow, these are really really gorgeous.  I am super impressed and I love the last one especially. (Also, the 'B' looks fabulous!)

I am an apologist for the spiders.

Just treat me no differently than you would the Tarantula Queen.
