In today’s video (Part 2, linked below) we go over assembling the exterior of both the Backpack and tote.

I mention (and link!) in the video about the additional video for extra tips and tricks setting the base if you’re using waxed canvas for your Buckthorn. You can find that video here!

In Part 3 next week, the final part of the sew-along, we will assemble the lining and then install the zipper! After this week, the lining will be a breeze to sew through! We’re getting close!

If you have a certain question, please let me know, and I’ll do my best to discuss it in next week’s video! Just leave a comment below.

Watch the video for Part 2 of the sew-along!
