YAY! Completed Projects

Marshy's backpack is finally finished! HOORAY! He didn't like it much at first, but now I can't get him to leave it alone.

These pictures are from his first wearing of the backpack. Sorry they're blurry. He kept running away and trying to rip it off his back!
He tried to dive into his ball pit (behind him) to get away from me. I was only trying to take a couple pictures and then I was gonna take it off!

Once I pointed out that there were elephants (I think it's really a wooly mammoth) on the backpack, he was totally into the bag.

This is the front of the bag. It has a pocket and a zippered pocket on the outside, and a 2-sectioned pocket on the inside.
This is the back of the bag. When I make my next one, I think I'll make the straps a little longer, and only 1 inch wide instead of 1 1/2 so that I can use the nicer plastic strap adjusters instead of the metal D-rings. It didn't turn out too bad though, using the D-rings.

This is the inside of the bag. It's kind of dark. Sorry. One of my kitchen lights is out, and I don't have the extend-a-suction cup thingy to change it. It's on my vaulted ceiling that is like 12 feet at least!

I also finished two Halloween quilts for clients. They turned out really cute.

I assume that wider straps would also be more comfortable for frail shoulders. What didn't he care for at first??
