Bronze Mini Making Backpack

I just love how this one turned out! I had so many piles of different fabric combinations, but this one found its way to the top! This beautiful bronze mini Making Backpack might be my fave.

Sewing up samples is always my favorite part of a new pattern! I love picking through my stash (and maybe ordering a few new ones) and pulling all the notions together. My cutting table is usually piled very high with different combinations and sometimes when they topple over I find a new combo that jumps out at me.

I’m so glad I went with my gut on this one. The bronze color is just amazing in person. I know everything was gray for so long, so it’s really refreshing to see more warm browns out there. I especially love how the tone on tone version looks. Don’t get me wrong, I love all sorts of pairings, but I’m definitely into this look.

Summer Sewing

What’s everyone up to this summer (or winter for our southern hemisphere friends)? I talked about doing a smallish sew-along for the Making Backpack, but I also considered doing a blog post or two (including a video) instead of doing an email based version.

I think I mentioned it before, but my friend Jess of Oklaroots has a full on video tutorial featuring the Regular size Making Backpack. Check that out if you’re itching to get going.

If you have any opinions on what you’d like to see from me, I’d love to hear.

    If I made this in a different fabric type what would you recommend? I love the pattern but not ready to use canvas or denim etc yet.

    I am so sad there isn’t a sew along video by you for this backpack. I successfully made the Haralson belt bag and the sandhill sling and used your sew along when needed and was looking forward to doing the same with this cute pattern.
