WAY Outside of My Comfort Zone

I'm a firm believer in stepping outside of your comfort zone & trying new things (at least, you know, crafty stuff), so when I saw a giveaway for a Simplicity Prize Pack, I thought, eh, I'll throw in a couple entries. It included Simplicity Pattern #1602, designed by Heather from The Sewing Loft, & all the supplies needed to make a bag.
I don't make bags, & I have never used a pattern like this. I think it shows the incredible high quality of the instructions that I was actually able to make this.

Please ignore my mess. I poof destruction like a wizard when I sew. Or cook. Or Knit. Or basically do anything creative.

So, it isn't perfect, but it's done :) And my daughter likes it, & that's what counts.

Linking up with Link A Finish Friday & Can I Get A Whoop Whoop?,


  1. Cute!!! I've never made a backpack - impressive. :D

  3. WOW - that's a cute backpack. Congrats to a great finish !
