It's Rocket Boy.....

This is what I have been working on the last few days, it is Ebi-kuns new bag for our trip home, everyone needs a new holiday bag don't they? (hubby would disagree on that but he is a bloke...). I have had the idea bouncing around for a while and when I sat down to do the math and work out how to put it together I nearly gave up, it was the zip and how to put it in which was the problem. Ebi-kun saw the sketches and then when I said I might make a robot instead he went mad so I had another go... sometimes it is that little push that is needed.


All in all it turned out quite well, I love the window with him looking out and the door with his robot inside....
The rocket blasters took me 2 hours to sew on but were worth the effort and punctured fingers
The zip pull is a little space cadet, Ebi-kun got very excited when he noticed this detail :o)
There is a handy pocket in the top for his nose bleed tissues and other small objects...
The inside is lined and has loads of pockets, I couldn't get a good photo. Ebi-kun has asked for a chest strap like his other bag so I will have to add that later. I don't think I used the right kind of interfacing, it has wrinkled somewhat and I have no idea why. I was think of making it into a sewing pattern, once I have worked out the problem areas and made a few modifications, what do you think?

On a completely different note, I will be getting an iphone as a mothers day pressie - hurrah! so I decided to download all the video clips off my current phone, these are my two favs, I dare you watch this and not crack a smile.
 

and he is a right little groover....
