Finn/Fionna Backpack Tutorial by MishaCosplay Finn/Fionna Backpack Tutorial by MishaCosplay
This is my Finn/Fionna backpack tutorial. I honestly don't know how many ppl this will help cuz I honestly didn't know what I was doing when I made this. I apologize in advanced if this is a hard to understand tutorial. The construction and "pattern" where all me. I had no references other than the adventure time pictures of Fionna and Finn that I used. I chose to go for a more oval look than circle just cuz honestly I think the circle looks kinda funny when made into an actual backpack. It works for the show but not for me. Also! I know that my button color is technically wrong but I though adding some yellow would make the pack look a little more cute and fem. If you don't like the tutorial thats fine, I don't care. All I know is I had promised this some time ago and I finally got around to finishing it! xP

Items you will need to make your own Finn/Fionna back pack:

2 shades of green Fabric one light green one dark green about 1 yard of each for beginners and about 1/2 yard each if your more skilled.

1 big button in whatever color you choose.

1 zipper if you want the backpack to be fully functional. (optional)

Stuffing (optional)

Some type of other fabric color doesn't matter to make a lining. (optional)

Fabric Scissors (sp?)

Thread in whatever color you want.

Sewing Machine (this can be hand sewn if you chose to do it that way.)

I DO NOT TAKE CREDIT FOR THE DESIGN OF THE BACKPACK!

(I also apologize if I misspelled anything in this tutorial! I made this in windows paint and they sadly don't have spell check. I also suck at spelling. xP )

If my tutorial doesn't have the right look for your back pack check out this tutorial! --> piggynukka.deviantart.com/art/…
I think the back pack looks pretty cool myself and a bit more accurate to the show.

Awesome ppl who have used this tutorial:

Thank you so much I've been thinking about who to cosplay and I have 3 ideas so far and Fionna is obviously one but my other two I can't find many ideas on how to make anything for their costume and this has made it so much less stressful to know its so easy to make so thanks!!

what is the C?
Reply
:iconmishacosplay:
MishaCosplay Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2013
The C is the strip that goes around the whole backpack to connect the front and back and create more space inside the pack.

D can be as big or small as you wish. I don't know what my final measurements for D were when I made the back pack so Its all up to you.

Can you do a tutorial on how to make Finn's sword like the one in the last picture? Thanks in advance.
Reply
:iconmishacosplay:
MishaCosplay Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2012
I could try, I didn't actually make that sword though. I bought it at Toys R Us. The process is gonna be pretty much the same deal as Fionna's sword just so you know. ^^ I Shall post the tutorial as soon as possible!

Thanks so much for the tutorial! It was really helpful, but I just want to let you know that your fabric estimate is way high. I got a yard of each and still had a lot left over. 1/2 yard would probably be better :)

:iconmishacosplay:
MishaCosplay Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2012
Oh, Yeah I always suggest more fabric for beginners cuz I've screwed up a lot over the years. I should suggest an amount for the more skilled too. I'm glad the tutorial was so helpful! And thank you for letting me know! I'm always glad to hear feed back! ^^
