When I picked up Cal from preschool on Tuesday he actually asked me to make him a backpack. WHAT?? He is not interested in my sewing for the most part- except actually the machine itself. He likes that a lot! So we came home and I fawned all over him and we chose fabrics together (aka I picked out the fabrics and he happily agreed). In a couple hours we had a cute backpack! This morning, we walked the girls to the bus and I took pictures of him. He was so proud.
This is the toddler backpack from made by Rae. I have lost the actual instructions and now only have the pattern pieces left. They must have been on my old computer. After making this I realized that the last time I made one was for Elsie going to Kindergarten.
The blog post about Elsie is here. That was my second blog post ever and I laughed when I saw my formatting troubles. She looks so little in those pictures and was so excited about her first day of school.
It would have been nice to have the instructions and I am sure if I had emailed her, she would have sent me another copy but Miss Impatience decided I could handle it on my own. No serious problems but I am sure that clever Rae has it all worked out perfectly.
I added a simple zipper panel to the front. I used some more of my AnnKelle fabric. So so cute! The sides are green duck cloth and the striped is a decorator weight from the Joann clearance section.
Thank you all for your help on my bunny! I replaced the eye with smaller buttons and I am now playing around with embroidering a nose. I also bought some BEAUTIFUL fabric from Amy and I am working on another version of the 3 layer clutch. I don't have that pattern out of my system just yet. I just love watching it all come together and this Heather Ross fabric is making such a pretty spring version. What are you making?
