    Very cute! You did well to persevere 😀 xx

  4. What a terrific backpack and it turned out fabulously despite the trials and tribulations! Sue is a great model 😉 I made a backpack off Craftsy three years ago and was surprised at how easy it came together; I’ll have to check out this one. Who knows, it could be the same maker since they ditched the majority of their patterns. I’m glad Catherine loved it, was there ever a doubt? Thanks for linking up!

    5 hours, for me, is still a good time for a project! It is a great idea, and you actually thought about something she might like and use, so there are bonus points in this one for you. =) And bicycle fabric for a bicyclist and your favorite partner for a model? This scores a 1000!

  7. Well done on your first bag! Now on to the next, the one for Dominic. Of course, you know if you make him one, there will be one more, right??

  8. Hi Roseanne. I love the daypack and the “artificial” cell phone! Great inspiration especially after your trial and tribulations. The bike fabric is too sweet! 😄 Carol

    Roseanne, that pack is perfect. The bikes are great!

  10. For some reason I am just not a bag maker! Could be I would be pulling my hair out with my mistakes! LOL But it turned out pretty!

    It’s a superb backpack Roseanne! I had to laugh at you story, reminds me so much of when I try to follow a pattern but the finished project looks AWESOME!

    Love the fabric used and totally enjoyed the list of challenges along the way. Hope your boss loves it, plus the choc bars!

    This day pack came out beautifully. And I LOVE your idea of attaching the pictures to candy! Especially Cadbury Chocolate candy! May I also say how very impressed I am at your willpower! You can be certain that were it I, the pockets would have ended up being stuffed with just the pictures!

    Hello Roseanne, I am sorry that you had trouble with this project. Yet, it did make a marvelous bag gift in the end! You are far from being alone in not following the directions and also in cutting wrong right from the get go. I seem to encounter that one once to often….LOL at myself! It is always fun to try a new pattern every now and then and look at what you ended up with!! Have a fantastic day! Waving hello!!!

  16. Wonderful version of the bag and the pockets are perfect! I am so glad you conquered the squirrel and made it through your own version of “what was I thinking”!! Happy Friday!

  17. Vicki in MN says:

    Well now that you got that out of your system, the next one will go so much smoother ya know!!!

  18. Judy Blauer says:

    What a great idea! I love the bicycle fabric!

  19. Laura says:

    It may have become a nightmare to sew, but it was worth it! The bag is a wonderful gift! 🙂

  20. Roseanne, the bicycle day pack is SUPER cute, I’m sure Catherine will love it! The fabric is lovely and I enjoyed reading about the adventures you had making it — too funny ♥♥
