My brother in law is turning 14 this weekend, and he has been asking for a hat like my FIL has. I made him one out of a pattern my MIL drafted herself, and I also made him this cool camo backpack with a flame applique. It is my first time making a backpack and doing applique, and I think I did a fairly good job. I just made the pattern up in my head as I went along. I had to add the zipper by hand, but the bag will withstand the abuses of a high school boy. The lining is the same as the outside, and I used buckles and strapping to make it look like something storebought ( i know from experience how high schoolers like to tease kids with handmade stuff). I am extremely proud of myself.

oooh lucky boy! i love the bag! (and that is coming from a highschool kid.)I know what you mean about homemade it was such a big thing back in middle school but now i just amaze everyone if i have something i made myself, i guess its cause i have talent and they don't... hmm... i guess every school is different though, hope he likes his new bag and hat! ^_~

thanks for the comments everyone! I am a perfectionist when it comes to sewing, so I was a little worried about the appearance but now I think its fine.
