The Range Backpack, an excellent pattern by Noodlehead, has been on my radar since last summer when I saw the one made by Amanda Jean. I promptly came home from the quilting retreat in Minnesota and ordered waxed canvas from A. L. Frances Textiles, which then sat in a corner in my sewing room until this week, nearly a year later!
The canvas felt stiff as a board, literally, and I was quite intimidated at the thought of sewing through something that stiff. But I followed Anna's pattern, and with a size 16 denim needle, it was actually a breeze to make.
