Beginnings of a Robot Pack

Amazing how far one can get when you have a spare moment or two. This is how far I have gotten on this little project. The zipper is a little wonky, but it works.

Now I just need to construct the back and work out the webbing length for it. I am thinking it's going to need something to make it a bit stiffer on the bottom and back to keep it's shape. I didn't mind his last one slouching a little, but this one being so boxy will need to be able to keep it's shape a bit more, I think. Any suggestions? I cannot think of the name of the plastic-y stuff that is used for bags and such. Or is it plastic-y? What is it, anyway? I honestly have no clue.

Well, it's to bed for me! I am trying to get myself back into a school schedule bedtime, but this Olympics deal has made it pretty tough. Anyone else having this problem?


  1. Very cute robot backpack! I've read over at Grace Violet that she's been using iron-on vinyl to make fabrics more sturdy and long lasting. Maybe that would work on your robot.
