As always, thanks for the Wednesday Weekly. I’ve been looking for a backpack pattern very much like the Huxley. I had not heard of this pattern company before and probably wouldn’t have found this pattern if not for your post!

Glad to hear it! That is exactly why I love doing this roundup!

This post makes me realize how much you and Fiona from Diary of a Chainstitcher keep me up to date on what’s new in sewing. Thanks for all the work you put into this!

Aww, thanks so much Lisa! It is my pleasure 🙂

Just found your blog! Love the Wednesday Weekly, found 2 inspirations in this one:-)

Thank you Helen for the kind mention! Loving the Wednesday Weekly as ever 🙂 xx
