I've procrastinated on Sackboy. He currently has two arms with posable fingers and only part of his head, the poor fellow. I'm just not enjoying making him due to (a) having a time limit and (b) the lack of creative flexibility. It's just not my usual it-doesn't-look-like-my-sketch-but-still-looks-cute way. So he's been abandoned temporarily for more enjoyable Christmas gift projects.
First up .... some bird and cloud fridge magnets for someone newly out of home. After around a decade in my own home I still use far more junky free advertising magnets than I should. Thought I'd give her a headstart.
And for a friend's daughter who is starting kindergarten next year I made a backpack. She's far more girly than my two little ones. So out came the pink floral that's been gathering dust. Her mum thought she'd like her name on the bag too.
I used this pattern from the Husqvarna website. The large gaudy flowers were discarded and I cut the main bag piece a couple of inches smaller. Not sure whether or not I will use the pattern again. Moderations are required if I do. Does anyone know of a good kids backpack pattern?
