The first one is a kids retro style apron with bias taped edging.
The second gift I made is a backpack that my family is amazed at. I borrowed this book from the library and there were two pattern sheets missing from it and there are four. The pattern for the backpack was on one of the sheets thats missing so I made up my own pattern and used the book as a guideline. I used a glow-in-the-dark zipper, though I didn't know it was until I after I bought it, and worked great. I am very pleased with the results.
