Slacker, that's what I am when it comes to blogging. But on the other hand, I've really been busy.
I made myself a back pack. When we fly one particular airline, we only take a back pack. Yep, we are cheap and the back pack is free. So I wanted one with out all those compartments.
I used an imitation suede on the back of the straps (hobby lobby too). This keeps the straps from sliding off your shoulders.
I'd love to share the pattern with you, but it's only in my head. I just winged it. It turned out great.
I did make one major mistake. Can you figure out what it is?
I flipped it the wrong way. So my back pack is wider than longer. But hey, whatever, it works, I just have to widen my shoulders!
The blacksmith has been busy too, teaching the young. Ethan was so excited to get a personal lesson from the master.
Ethan gifted me with this hand made split oak basket for the blacksmith giving him a lesson. I love it!
