backpacking fever

My husband and two of my children will be leaving in a couple of weeks for a long backpacking trip. They will be hiking the John Muir trail which is about 230 miles. I made these bags (stuff sacks in backpack language) for them to use. Aren't they cute? I found the ripstop fabric, cord and fasteners all at my local fabric store. They were simple to make and my husband thinks I can do anything, just because I can make these simple bags. :) The next project is going to be more difficult - raincoats! We'll see how that goes. Maybe I can quilt while they're gone.

  1. I pretty much think you CAN make anything!! I'm sure the raincoats will turn out great.

  3. You are seriously attempting raincoats??? How are the seams handled so that rain doesn't go through? I am very curious!
