Well, one thing is for sure, I'm getting through these backpacks really well. I know them off by heart now. Just finished number 6 yesterday. I had a few interruptions over the weekend, but finally got it done. This one is supposed to be for Cooper (10 years old), but I think it's too pale for him, so I might swap it over with Dana's. I don't know yet, I'll need to talk with Dana as she wanted a blue one, and this one is all Aqua. I think the darker blue one I made second in this series would suit a little boy better. I can always make another dark blue one with Aqua accents. I've got time!!! I actually made these in a 9x14 hoop. Love Chris

Thanks so much Deb, I've just finished all the sections for Chase's red and blue backpack. Tomorrow I'll have to make the lining. Then I will make Cohen (he's 5) in oranges etc.
Love Chris

It is a beautiful colour, but you may be right about it being to light for a boy
maybe some darker panels and accent stitching may work. I'm sure you will work it out.

Beautiful shade of aqua, but I agree, not very masculine.
If any one of them are not wanted, you could always send one up here to me!!! I love them all (especially the dk blue one!) LOL !

So pretty! I completely agree with you - this is a beautiful blue but, not as masculine as a darker blue would be. Let us know what you decide to do! I know so much work went into these - well done!! Hugs and Take good care of yourself!! Laura

Thanks Laura, I spoke with Dana today and asked if I can swap and she said that's fine, but I think I'll make another dark blue one with some aqua on it. Love Chris
