Wow. I made a lot of typos in that last post... o_o;
Yeah, good point about the felt, but it was a really good color, almost perfect to what it looks like in the anime (the backpack's a bit brighter orange in the colored manga pics that I've seen). But, you did give me an idea. I think I'll line it in cotton/muslin or something, which should make it hold up better.
*sigh* Maybe I should have used bright orange fleece.
