My old back pack had torn since few months ago. I used to put in water bottle , handphone and other stuff inside and follow my husband for Hash trail walk.
Two weeks ago, i started to plan on the design and templates . Due to afraid of my incorrect accurate drawing , first i draw roughly on the newspaper . And then correct any of the mistake on the templates before transfer it on the A3 paper. I also bought some cardboard to glue it .
After everything has make sure, then i choose a yellow and brown canvas fabric, and trace the templates on the canvas and interface and cut out. I did not sew imediately, i left it a week Due to have to settle the custom orders. On monday, 19, November, 2012. i spend two days on this unfinished project because need to take down the note and measurement, and unpick while sewing. I may put this back pack as one of the tutorial project in my workshop.
I met a young, generous malay undergrad student from UiTm at Fabric Fanatics 's shop last week. He is a book worm. He reads a lot of english book. He asked whether can be able to make two book cover on his favourite collections with different fabric. Besides this , he would like to have a compartment to slot in the led light.
I told him frankly that i have not been sew such a specific goods before but would like to take this as my challenge. This young guy say will leave it to me whatever i can.
To sew a book cover is easy. But to sew a book cover with waterproof fabric and to slot in the led light , haha...then it will be another story.. I took 2 days to think of what are the best way to slot in . I sew , unpick for several times. Finally , i completed it in time. ( He want it within 12 days from the date i accept the order).
Here it is the waterproof fabric book cover. I put up the handle and flip with snap button on it.
This is a book cover with linen fabric.
Sew a compartment for led light , cotton handle and a flip with snap button. Completed on 6th, Nov. 2012
