Happy Birthday Mom...

I lost my Mom to Throat Cancer on August 2nd. Today she would have been 62. She was beautiful, smart, witty, crafty, loving...everything a mom should be and so much more. I owe who I am today to her. Happy Birthday, Mom. I love you.

Dino Backpack

My daughter asked me to make her a backpack / purse like this one I made her sister a while back.  I used a different pattern, and Taylor requested fabric with a slightly different motif.  She loves dinosaurs, especially T-Rexes.  Here is what she picked out.

I think it turned out really cute...


Using the webbing for the handles was much easier than sewing fabric ones - I always have trouble getting my straps to look nice,

There's a magnetic snap for the flap...

...and lots of room inside all kept secure with a drawstring closure.

She loves it.  Did I mention she's almost 19???

I'll be linking up to some great parties this week - come take a look!
