Episode Thirteen: How To Design A Sewing Project Kids Will Really Use

May 26, 2022

Deborah Moebes talks through the thought & design process behind the Junior Ranger backpacks she sewed for her three children as a way to display the embroidered patches they've earned at the US National Parks.  This coffee-date talk also includes conversation about the Junior Ranger program itself, how Deborah thinks through projects as part of an intentional design process, how to sew with bias tape on thicker fabrics, and why it's worth it to design with longevity in mind.
