Many thanks to everyone who voted and in turn helped to redesign our weekly project! The remake, shown here is reminiscent of a vintage vacuum bag and could easily be sized up to create a really fun backpack. Let us know, in the comments, if you can envision the backpack or something else!
If you would like to participate in future live events, such as this, please register on the events page.
Until then, be well and sew happy!
Pattern measurements & materials for the new "mini vacuum bag":
Finished measurements: 8" tall x 5" wide by 2.5" deep
If you prefer, no sound and the ability to pause, here is the demonstration video used in the live chat.
