Handmade Disney Aristocats Backpack

I think I'm hooked.  Making these Debbie Shore backpacks is so incredibly easy and super quick and can be made in any size you want.  I made this one for my sister (again....this time she is not giving this one to her beautiful wee daughter.....this one is all for her).  The Harry Potter one I made her mysteriously ended up on the back of my 5 year old niece, teehee.   
I made this one a little bit bigger and because I made the first one, I sort of knew what I was doing this time.  So overall this one is just sewn better. I added the toggle clasp which was bought on Ebay
I love the fabrics, they are so cute with the cats from Aristocats and the dogs from Lady and the Tramp.  Again, the webbing is from Ebay.  I prefer the cotton webbing as it's softer and very easy to sew through
I added the wee extendable pockets on the side so my sister can add her water bottle or even mobile phone to it.  There is one on each side
I did add the magnetic clasp this time too, as per Debbie's instructions but I felt it was too small and not strong enough for this bag.  That is why I added the toggle clasp, as extra protection.  I do have little clasps coming for the string pulls, which I purchased from Ebay but they have yet to arrive
For the inside pockets, this time I lined the pocket instead of it being one single piece of fabric.  This made the inside pockets feel more substantial and robust.  All around, I sewed this bag much better than the last one, teehee
It's hard to photograph a backpack.  It wants to crease and fall in all sorts of ways, lol
And that's another backpack....in the bag!  Ugh, did I really just say that?!  My brother has requested another Harry Potter one for my niece for Christmas....so watch this space.
That's it from me for now folks.  Goodness knows what I'll be doing next....it's always a mystery and adventure, teehee.
