    I made two backpack sling bags for my son and his girlfriend. They both play volleyball in high school. I didn't use a pattern so im very happy they turned out right.

    love them...I've seen all the kids using those type of backpacks, and could never figure out how the rope goes thru...were they difficult?

    Those are great. I'm impressed. I wouldn't be able to do that without a pattern.

    I made my graddaughter and her fellow team mates pillowcases out of the pink and one out of the blue for the coaches-one of which was her father.

    Actually it wasn't that hard to run the cording thru, you go in and out with one cord on same side and repeat with different cording on opposite side.

    Ohhh, so it's not one long piece of cording...ok. That makes sense to me now.
