Mary and Granddaughter Abby @ RanchHouse

I normally post as Mary @ RanchHouse. Today Granddaughter Abby @ RanchHouse has a project to share. Abby made an awesome back-pack to use when she returns to school soon.
Buttons from Abby's stash

Abby up-cycled pant legs saved
from jeans and the fur from a coat refashion.
She also used fabrics and trims 
from the stash at RanchHouse. 
Buttons came from her personal 
button stash at the RanchHouse.

Flap open front
Abby drew the design,
determined needed sizes 
and lengths, pinned, 
and did all of the hand stitching.
I provided machine stitching.
We plan for Abby to join us at RanchHouse and Refashion Coop again.
