Something to Do While It’s Quiet

I just wanted to warn you that it’s going to be a little quiet here for the next month or so.  I’m taking a little break from updating this ...

Back to Pack

Another makeover project, and finished just in time for classes. 
I needed a backpack for school, a tote or messenger bag wasn’t cutting it.  I had this old one that was perfect in terms of pockets and other features, but it had seen better days.  After a bit of sprucing up…
…It looked like this.  I first washed it really well and cut of the mesh pockets on the front and sides.  I never used them anyway.  I also made a few repairs like re-stitching some seams and the like.  Then came the fun part.  I hand-stitched thin lace along all the zippers and pockets.  Afterward I threaded some thin pink ribbon through the lace.  I replaced the zipper pulls with more ribbon to finish.  Now it’s pretty and functional again, ready for my first class.  I wish I was too.
Here’s the updated list:
  • Pens
  • Binder
  • Lunch bag
  • Backpack
  • Button
  • Scarf
  • Doll house
Four down, just three more to go.  The next one will be up by Friday with another surprise.
