Does anyone having sewing sites that they frequent? I am looking for a pattern to make a backpack. My daughter's friend has one but her mom no longer has the pattern.
Well there is a kids back pack here:
Also..there are all sorts of different ones here:
Hope that is what you are looking for
... but I gave it up for writing.
When my daughter was little, I made a lot of clothes for her because she appreciated them, but as she got too old and thought it was "uncool" I lost interest. I did a few things for my son but sewing for boys isn't as fun as sewing for girls!
I know..when and WHY do they wake up one day and go...oh Mom..I know you worked on this easter dress for me for 3 weeks daily...but I don't want something home made.
Yes that was oddly specific (grrrr)
It is rather sad that today "home made" is less valued than store bought.
However, my daughter is 18 now and she has made some of her own clothes, so maybe it helped set a precedence of sorts. She does it without a pattern, or by altering a pattern -- much more sewing skill than I have.
