    I had to read this again today, since that last line gave me such a giggle yesterday!

    Your backpack is beautiful and just my colors!

    Awesome job! I have yet to tackle a purse, wallet, or backpack so I admire your tenacity.

All my luggage pieces and backpacks use this method of finishing, it does get easier to manage the more you do. I think the best way is to use a pretty wide binding piece and sew it around the outside edge first, then wrap it and sew the inside edge. I think that is how I did it.
    If I did another one, I would put the binding on before it was assembled. Live and learn.

    I feel your pain about the bias bound edges. I would be drinking some scotch and doing a little cursing myself. However, great job. It looks fabulous

    Re: Backpack

    LOL, I can relate to the bias bound seams. I usually just get out the serger and serge the edges of all pieces before I start sewing. Then all the edges are covered as I sew. BackPack looks great

    Backpack

    My daughter found this pattern on Craftsy and decided she needed one. It is a mini backpack and the pattern can be found at byannie.com. It was a challenge to sew because of all the soft and stable, zippers, and pockets with stabilizer.
    The inside edges are supposed to be covered with bias binding but I gave up on that really fast. I tried but had a sudden urge to drink heavily and use bad language.
