~My Edelweiss Backpack ~ A Sew Sweetness Pattern!

I’m so excited to be able to finally share the first backpack I’ve ever made!!  Sara from Sew Sweetness is one of the best handbag designers and this is new newest release, The Edelweiss Backpack!   I’ve been testing for Sara for over a year now so I can honestly say she is a fantastic designer and her patterns are a must have for sewists who love to make handbags!  This is the first time I have ever made a {Read More}
