Sometimes I amaze even myself.

This is totally a self-aggrandizing post, but if you can't do that in LJ, where can you do it?

So, I wanted to make something special out of my Doctor Who bag before Comic-con. Seeing as I've made about eleventy billion tote bags, I wanted to go with something different. The idea of making a backpack is something I've toyed with for a while, but I could never find a pattern I liked (that was free) and so just never made one. As the time to leave for San Diego approached, I finally said "screw it, I don't need no stinkin pattern!" and I just went for it. It's not finished but the hard part is over, now it's just seams and bias tape. It wasn't until I got this far that I thought, "wow, I'm actually quite good at working with these bags" Also, I'm humble. Anyway.. this is my Doctor Who backpack so far:

Yes, that is a zippered pocket on the front.. I'm still rather amazed I pulled it off.


I think the real question is what CAN'T you do. \o/

It's AMAZING, dearest!! As usual, you're rocking my socks with your craftiness!!
Liz you are AMAZING at these! :) I can't wait to see you with your backpack this year getting stopped every 5 minutes with a "where did you get that?" *LOL*

Really looking foward to seeing you in a couple of weeks!
If LJ had the applause smiley, I'd be using it right now. Good job!
AWESOME job Liz!!!
