oliver + s sew along: starting the backpack

I finished tracing and cutting out the pattern pieces for the Little Things to Sew backpack (month 2 of the oliver +s sew along!). Holey moley, that's a lot of pieces!

And I'm not even cutting out the little pieces to make the penguin! I'll be using that dinosaur fabric under the pattern pieces. No one really needs a new backpack in our house, so I didn't want to buy new fabric. I'll be using the leftovers from this project. Here's to hoping I don't need a full yard of fabric!


  1. I love that dino fabric! I still have to buy mine. whoops. It's always good to use up something you already have though, especially something that cute!

  2. Wow! That is a lot of pieces! I'm not doing the penguin either, as cute as it is. Can't wait to see your dinosaur back pack!

  3. I started tracing last night...OMG, the number of pieces!! The dino fabric is fun!
