Sweatshirt Backpack

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Sweatshirt Pack Pack Link to website or photo www.craftsy.com/pattern/sewing/Accessory/Sweatshirt-Back-Pack-PDF-Pattern/737 What are you most proud of? Getting the design/logo centered and getting the grommets installed correctly. This is my own pattern/design - I love backpacks. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The grommets can be a pain - I found that a good hammer, a strong arm, and solid cement work best.

Q&A with Ms. Elaineous

Grandepuce asked:
I love these back packs! Great use of a sweatshirt - Thanks for sharing.

Grandepuce asked:
Unfortunately, I'm TOTALLY challenged when it comes to sewing!! I sometimes manage to do some VERY basic stiching on my greeting cards - but beyond that, it's a bit of a challenge for me -and for goodness sake...let's not even talk about being able to follow a pattern!!. I appear to have a love - hate relationship with my sewing machine, so I just admire all the projects people post on this website instead. Maybe someday I'll overcome my sewing phobia - but in the meantime, I live vicariously through others and admire all the sewing and knitting projects I see posted. LOL
Ms. Elaineous answered:
Oh don't give up! I've taught a lot of beginners and in most cases the problem lies with bad equipment...most likely a machine that doesn't work well. Very, very few lack the aptitude for sewing. So keep trying!
Becky Musil asked:
Very clever idea. I would like to try this if a pattern become available

Ms. Elaineous answered:
I plan on getting it finalized over Christmas -- I teach and it's a perfect time for me to work on this! Thanks for the interest!
