With Will's old Army blouses? (I already repurposed or upcycled a pair of the pants to make skirts for my girls. I want to make a skirt for myself, too.)
I think I'll make a backpack! (Gwennie was an unwilling model for it.)
This took me about an hour and a half. I would have liked to line it, but this was just a prototype. There are a few things I plan to change if/when I make another. It was quite easy, though.
I was able to cut it out in such a way that I didn't have to sew in a zipper or pockets. I only had to attach the pencil pocket from one of the sleeves to the outside. Also, I used one of the sleeve for the straps (which are not adjustable). It only took one blouse to make it and its big enough to hold a few note books.
Also- this is what we* built for Rhayn's teacher's end of the year gift. Can't wait for his "ladies" to make themselves comfortable in their new home and start laying eggs.
*By we, I do not mean me, I merely helped paint it. Will helped a lot. He is awesome at building things. One of my friends drew up the plans and bought the materials, then we gathered at her house to put it together. We plan on having the children all paint their hand prints on the coop before he is given it.
