Hi! Kate here from see kate sew! I was thrilled to test out the new Flight line in knit. I was filled with inspiration as I sewed with it, I can't stop thinking of things to make! My 3 year old son loves it, too! He calls the birds "airplanes" which I think is cute! They do look a little like airplanes!

This is such a great gender neutral fabric. I made this knapsack for my boy because he loves carrying stuff around, mostly dirt and trains. I hope he'll use this for trains and NOT dirt, but we see I guess!

Now sew the front piece to the back piece. The sides and bottom will be in the middle and the flap will extend beyond the side pieces.

Repeat steps 2-7 with lining pieces, omitting the triangles. Sew twill tape to the top of the flap. Turn the main piece inside out. Keep the lining right side out.

Put the lining inside of the main backpack piece so that the right sides are facing. Line up the open edges and pin together. Then sew all the way around, leaving a 2-3" opening on the front to turn.

  2. Hiya! I really enjoyed making this but I can't make my corners look fab when joining seams to make bottom of the bag. I think I'm missing a trick, does anyone have a link for sewing corners? I can only find boxed corners but this doesn't seem to be the same? Thanks

Beautifully filled soaps in emotional soapboxes immediately attract attention and people tend to buy soap by looking at the creative packaging of the soap.
