Phew. I finally completed my son’s backpack yesterday, bringing it to a total of about 7 hours over 2 days of planning, cutting and sewing.
After this attempt, I’m sure I can make another backpack in a shorter time. That’s the thing with prototypes. Many hours are needed to figure out how to make something a bit more complicated than a zipper pouch. I love watching my son carry this, especially next to the mass store-bought-China-made McQueen bags. Ah, he would have loved that too, though. Give him anything McQueen and you’ll be his best bud…for now.
