Back to the Gym!

A few weeks ago Bridget and Jenny decided to make a back-pack in one of my classes at The Grove. Although the pattern was called "Gym Junk" from Vanilla House, they decided to use their packs for lots of other things and create something that was uniquely theirs!

The pattern was supper easy, including the grommet setting technique used to run the shoulder cords through. Jenny chose a great fabric combination from Robert Kaufman called Mingle Espresso and Mingle Cocoa (don't you just love these names?). Very contemporary styling!

While Bridget used one of my newest fabrics celebrating the "Day of the Dead" (very timely), with fabric from Alexander Henry called Calaveras and a pocket of pretty pink leaves from Heather Bailey's Nicey Jane collection called Lindy Leaf.

on a job well done
barely a blink of the eye!


  1. Thanks Judi for all your help and patience with a novice like me. :) I've learned a lot and can't wait to learn more. ~ Bridget

  2. Good lord. When I read the title of your post, I thought...she's going to the gym now?!# I chuckled when I saw that it referred to your recent class! Your two students did a very professional job and I can't believe they were able to finish theirs so quickly. How gratifying for all!

  3. Hi Bridget! Hope you're enjoying your back pack! You did a great job! You're now officially in the DIY community!

  4. Thanks Judi. If I miss you this Saturday, that's because I am in the middle of moving. See ya in November! ~ Bridget
