How cute is this wee guy? I was asked by a friend, who works at a local hotel, to make a rucksack for their Teddy. It has to hold a notepad and pen, with the intention that the Teddy will spend the day with a young guest and any adventures can be noted in the pad.
Although essentially I was still making a bag, which I make rather a lot of, it was a refreshing change to come up with a new design, and figure out how best to put it together. With the rucksack being a far smaller scale it's more fiddly than the size of handbags I usually sew.
And it was no surprise to me that after Master and Miss World saw the rucksack, I'm having to make another couple. Just as well I made a template!!
