Legend of Zelda Backpack

I found the most awesome Legend of Zelda fabric at JoAnn Fabrics a while back and bought the entire bolt. Aftwr a long search, I finally found a nice fabric to match. I decided the first thing I’m making is a backpack.

I drafted my pattern by looking at a backpack I owned then made a muslin to test it out.

I tried my best to match the patterns.. not so easy! I used a thick woven interfacing to make the fabric more sturdy. This was my first time using metal zippers; not too bad except when I forgot they were metal and broke 6 needles (haha). Even after messing up a few times, I think it turned out well.

Learning Embroidery

I have been learning how to use my new embroidery machine and making custom designs. So far I’ve only been embroidering on tea towels (kitchen towels) and giving them as gifts. There has been a lot of trial and error!
