My granddaughters love to play that their 18” dolls are going to school. They have been using plastic grocery bags to carry their school supplies. I have a cute pattern for Zoo Animal Backpacks from PixieFaire. This morning I decided to make 2 doll backpacks. I used fabric and zippers from my stash so only bought some 15 mm eyes.
First I made the penguin.He is not perfect but very cute.
My second try was better. I made the monkey and made sure to line up the front and back better.
It is not a beginner pattern but the directions are good. You do have to sew 2 zippers in each.
Aren’t they cute? Now I am looking for some little books to fit in them.
I am almost finished quilting a lap quilt for my guild challenge to use a large print fabric. I only used the large print for the center of this big block quilt. (Pattern is from Kitchen Table Quilting except I added top and bottom border to make a rectangle. )
The leafy motif I just made up to mimic some leaves in the center fabric. Three corners are quilted.
I only do one corner a day so one more day of quilting.
Enjoy time sewing or quilting when you are not out enjoying the spring weather.
