You have done a great job, Toogie. I love it and Gus will be thrilled!
Thank you Lidia, he was! He got it yesterday when they came for Mother's Day. We visited outside but I got to be with them!!!
This is fun and wonderful. Excellent work as always.
Thank you Christine
Fantastic bag . he will treasure it. well done . hugs Pam.
Thanks for looking Pam!
Oh Toogie you are so clever the back pack looks very professional
Thank you Carol but you as well as others here do great work too. Still it was nice of you to say. Have a good day-T
Oh, Toogie, this is adorable! Gus is going to be thrilled with it! I hope you get out more - and a drive to nowhere is essential to your mental health, as far as I'm concerned! Hugs, stay well. Deb
I get out in the yard and watch and hope that the squirrels don't get the only two tomatoes in my garden so far.
Thanks for looking at Gus' backpack!
It is adorable....he will love it......Stay safe!
Thank you and the same to you. We get a rare family member drop something off on our porch but no one comes in.....
Awesome job, Toogie......
Thank you Vicki!
Great Backpack Toogie. Gus will be thrilled with it. Hopr you are keeping well and safe. Hugs
We are good, thank you, hope the same for y'all too.
so beautiful, you are very clever
Thank you, I do like to play!
That is perfect. You took extra care and time to make sure the design of the fabric matched up. Love it!! Did you make a pattern as you made the backpack?
Some pieces I did. One of our other nieces works for the newspaper. A year ago I was able to purchase a partial roll of paper for $5. if I remember correctly. It has a huge amount of paper left on it, so I use it sometimes to draw a pattern. Of course my other 'tool' for rounding corners is a tin can lid, plate, bowl, etc-lol-
Did you need the measurements?
Looks perfect to me. He will love it. You could take it over to his house and leave it on the doorstep. Then stand back and watch his joy. Hugs. Nan
I would have to let them know I'm coming or the outside dogs would chew it up! ...I told my husband the other day if he wanted to just 'get out' we could go ride and not really go anywhere or stop anywhere. He thought that was pointless. We did have to do our banking yesterday for this month, as I still had his last months check un-cashed or deposited. Mine is direct deposit. I deposited yesterday and gone today for house insurance. The saying, 'Here today, gone tomorrow', is so true.
Fantastic Toogie--I remember back about 15 yrs ago or so made one of my granddaughter's back pack without a pattern--fly by the seat of your pants kind of thing. I do a lot of design as I go kind of thing. Gus will love this when he gets it. So will mommy!!
I just hope I have enough strap for him to adjust. I think I do but maybe we will see before he out grows it.-lol-We always had to have so many bags for Avery but this one is made just for him. Thanks!
Well done Toogie, you've done an awesome job and he'll love it because you made it for him. I love the top section on your backpack with the central zipper. Love Chris
I should have sewn my zipper closer joining to the bottom gusset. I was afraid I had not allowed enough length, but as it turned out, I had exactly enough. I could have sewn it closer, had I been sure, but I wasn't ripping it out. -Not as fancy as yours but thanks!
So cute, he'll love it!
Thanks mops, I trust you are well.
That is Sooo Cute and Adorable!!!Pretty and Stunning work done!!!
Thank you Sonja I think he will be surprised, I usually make for his sister.
Great job!! This is adorable!
Congratulations on a super piece of work Toogie. Gus is one lucky lad. Love your choice of fabric.
The fabric was marked down when I got it so the attachments probably cost me more, but again, they’re in my stash!!! Thanks
