This was a gift for my room mate, and when I went to take photos of it, she said my dress form looked like it was 'ready for school'.



 It's not a large backpack, and the straps are not adjustable, but it is cute (not too challenging a pattern with a clean finished product -no visible seams inside or out). The fabric was a spoonflower print by Dennis the Badger on canvas (http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/1906078) -not affiliated, just love the site and the artist. Because I opted for a canvas fabric, I forwent (wow, that really is the proper conjugation of 'forgo') with the 'sew-in hair canvas' interfacing, and just used regular medium fusible pellon, and then used the fusible fleece for the second interfacing (that adheres to the lining) as prescribed.
