For quite some time I am thinking of making backpacks. I want one for myself to go the gym and to take on my walks in the mountains, especially when I go with the members from the Mediterranean Garden Society. The society has a lovely site. www.mediterraneangardensociety.org They have members all over the world. It's all about gardening in a mediterranean climate, like in California, some areas in Australia and of course in Europe.
The first backpack I made didn't turn out right. It was too long and didn't fit properly on my back. The second one turned out much better.
When I will be making the third I'll change the straps a bit. They are in the right place, but I'll make the lower straps shorter and the upper longer, because now the clasps are under my armpits. It's not uncomfortable but it would be better if the clasps are a bit more backwards. Every time you make something you learn something!
The water bottle I am taking everywhere fits nicely in the outside pocket. Inside there are pockets for cellphone and keys and a bigger pocket.
I still didn't make pictures of the quilt I finished, nor of the blue baby quilt. I'm rather busy! Have to make two baby bags. So, off to work!
