Believe it or not...the middle of July is here and Back to School is right around the corner!What's a girl to do when your sweet niece calls you to request a Super Cute Cinch Sac style Back Pack for her to start the new school year off with?

Let's get right on that and come up with something...PERFECT, just for Sidney!

My niece loves her some Clemson Tigers...Go Purple and with that in mind...

Let's get started!

This Back Pack was made using 3 different designs from Baby Kays Appliques...

First...I separated the Tiger Paw from the 5x7 size of the LOVE PAW Applique Design and tilted it slightly to the right.

Second...I used the G in the 3 inch size of the Jambo Applique Font.

Third...I used the 2.5 inch size in the Simple Days Font for the word “Tigers”.

This particular Back Pack has a BIG Zippered Front pocket and that's where I'm gonna put this Go Tigers combination design...but there are LOTS of different kinds of cinch style back packs out pick one that's just right for your child!Once I have merged the different elements in my software, my stitch design is approximately 6 1/8” tall X 7.75” wide...with just over 13,000 stitches.

Ready.... Set.... Stitch.... 

Good Grief...if you have never stitched the Jambo Applique Font are certainly in for a real treat!Lookey how pretty this triple bean stitch is on the letter G...just FABULOUS!I love how it makes the letter POP!The Tiger Paw Applique has the very same bean stitch too...I just can't say enough about how this extra stitching gives my appliques dimension.You are certain to LOVE it too!

Here she goes...stitching out the word Tigers using the Simple Days Font.This particular font is just as described in the title...SIMPLE...but it stitches so smoothly with every detail to the letters!

Nothing makes me happier than when a plan comes together...

My niece Sidney, is sure to LOVE her new back about YOU?
