Hi Cuties, here is Dana's backpack. I decided to just use one piece of plain lining on here instead of (as the pattern states) individual sections. You will notice on the inside of Aqualina's backpack there is an embroidered zippered pocket at the back. Each section is lined separately. I found that too time consuming!! plus more fabric!!!! So I made a zippered pocket as per a video on Youtube on how to inset a pocket in a lined bag. It worked perfectly and I just measured the height and width of the bag and made the one piece of lining. I'm happy it worked out great. Love Chris


1. Front of backpack (4 zips - 1 on the top and bottom section and the two side sections.
2. Back of backpack. I got out to Spotlight yesterday and finally got some sliders. I haven't put them on as yet.

Oh my! This is fantastic! You have such a good eye for placement of designs. I never seem to get the design perfectly centered, but you always do. She'll love and treasure this backpack.

These are really nice Chris. What size is the finish? They are all so personally unique. Great job! Be careful getting out. We have been isolated 3 weeks. There were 70 deaths overnight, just in our state.It is so sad...

Thanks Toogie. The big ones finish about 17 inches by 15 inches and the smaller ones are about 13 by 11. Yes, I was careful. We are only allowed to be 1 in a line. I was lucky as I was there early no one else was in line at Spotlight. I then went to do our grocery shopping. It's only a 18 minute drive to Spotlight and sometime either late this year or early next year Spotlight is moving to a new venue which is 4 minutes from my place. Yeah, I'll be in my element. Love Chris
