Can I Carry That for You?

Today First Wave teammate Erik Ostrander brought in great news: we have created a functional back pack. After the team pinned together a simple back pack, Erik sewed it together and presented it to the class today. Although the bag only had webbing for straps, the bag was wearable and is a great prototype to work off of. For the rest of class the team worked together to pin up straps and cut out templates for the final bag design. The team is making great progress but we’ll see if they can keep it up over the next two weeks as group leader Brian Halligan is headed off to Austria for some international skiing competitions.
