YEP…

I’m on a “Bag Season” ROLL here and today’s project is a Super Cute Cinch Sack Back Pack…

Just PERFECT for a trip to the Beach!

You may have noticed from a few of my past Blog Posts that I LOVE me some personalized bags…

Gracious Alive…

I’ve NEVER met a BAG I didn’t like!

How about YOU?

My neighbor Lisa needed a Cute Birthday Gift for her daughters Best Friend…Alexis!

What’s a girl to do…except…

Fire up my Sweet Matilda Jane (YES…I named my embroidery machine) and make her a cute Cinch Sack Back Pack to carry to the Beach this summer!

Let’s get started…

I chose to use the adorable Anchor with Bow Applique design in the 6 X 10 inch size and paired it with the 2” Size Hello Sunshine Font for her name.

The Cinch Sack Style Backpack I chose is from JiffyShirts.com, and it has a LARGE Zippered Pocket on the front…which, by the way, is SUPER Fabulous! I was able to unzip and load it onto my FULL 8 X 8 Fast Frame that I had prepared with Sticky Stabilizer. I added a pieced of Fusible No-Show Mesh Cutaway Stabilizer to the backside of the pocket for permanent added HOLD to my design over time.

YES…I LOVE me some No-Show Mesh Cutaway Stabilizer too..it’s TRUE!

Well…

Glory Be…

Here she goes…

I added a bunch of my FAVORITE Red Clippies from Clover to give my bag a “STAY IN IT’S PLACE” factor that I really think is important when you don’t want your item to shift!

And because it makes my Heart Sing…I slapped a piece of WSS on top…just after the tack down and trimming of the two fabrics!

Here’s my design stats…

Size…5 7/8” wide X 7.75” Tall
Stitch Count…16,549

Be STILL my Heart…

OMG…

It is just so darn cute…

 

Alexis is SURE to love it!
