I just finished making another felted sweater backpack, this time for one of my nieces. I lined this one, and put elastic in the front. I am slowly learning new sewing techniques, and getting a little bit better with each project, though I still have yet to follow a pattern. I have always made my own. I like birds, (if you can't tell) and bluebirds are one of my favorites, so it was fun doing the applique on this.
