School is back!

School was back this week and my middle daughter needed a new bag this year. I was originally thinking of making her another messenger bag but finally settled on a back pack (at her request). I had won the Edelweiss Bag pattern from Sew Sweetness a while ago so that was a good one to try.

I used some foam interfacing so there were some places where it was heavy and thick to sew and I must say my machine struggled a little but it was all worth it in the end, especially on the back

There is a zipped pocket inside at the back

and I added one at the front

I think if I make another one, I might make one bigger pocket on the front rather than 2 small ones.
The bag was finished just in time for going back to school and my daughter loves it, so that's great! It is very roomy and looks massive on her back!

And this is one of my Q3 FAL finished and a fab OPAM for September. I am really happy how this bag has come out! And this is also my September One Monthly Goal 
Linking to Whoop Whoop Friday.
