Navy Mini Making Backpack

I can’t believe I let this navy Mini Making Backpack sit in my closet without finishing it for so long!

The other day I was cleaning up my sample closet (for a new pattern coming up next week!) and I came across this almost-finished mini Making Backpack. It’s always fun to find a project that you forgot about!

I knew right away who I was going to give it to. I love it when it just clicks! My neighbor (who just got engaged) was the perfect recipient. So I scurried along and finished up making the binding and attaching it. And I added the zipper pulls for the finishing touch (these are the Pecan color).

This one is made using dry oilskin in a gorgeous Navy color. The interior is some of the last denim gingham fabric that I have left (I don’t think it’s made anymore). I had used some of Zipper Zoo’s webbing and I believe the zip by the yard is from My Handmade Space with the interior zip from my shop.

I really like how it turned out and I hope it goes on lots of adventures!

    Greetings from chilly Maine.
    Ive been following you for years. I absolutely love your style, fabric and patterns. You’re amazing!! Most recently I purchased the firefly pattern and have made a couple. So fun! I especially enjoyed the video. Is there a video for the Mini making backpack?
