Alexander's Back pack is finished

I sewed the back pack and attached Woof for Alexander to it on Friday. I don't like sewing my hand hooked rugs directly into the seams of bags or pillows because if the item is damaged or needs laundering it is a mess to try to unmake the item and preserve the rug intact. So I bind off the rug as if it were its own piece and then attach by hand whipping the rug to the face of the item as pictured.

Here is my son Alexander happy to be carrying a bunch of "sleep buddies" (=stuffed animals) in his pack on Saturday as we walked over to the french bakery for breakfast.
