Last I started sewing my second backpack. This week I finished making said rucksack. Specifically, I finished sewing on the straps, put in a lining and then waxed the outer shell.

Having that right angle square is perfect for doing perpendicular lines and that French Curve for well, curves.

Unfortunately now there is a whole bunch of other tools I want.

He always wears a turtleneck and blazer. He thinks his glasses make him look smart. He definitely doesn’t suffer fools.

I think he had some unfortunate experiences as a child that made him as mean as he is, but he really does help me with my problems. I went to go see him this week.
