The girls will be going to preschool this fall, and I wanted to make them some backpacks. I decided to get any early start because knowing me I would be stressed about them the night before school started and not get any sleep. I like sleep.
I used Made By Rae's Toddler backpack pattern. She so generously let me have it for free since I was a judge for Spring Top Week. I think I will start a new motto: "Will judge flickr photos for patterns." ;0) It was a great pattern. Easy to understand and to put together. There is some thick layers that you sew through, so make sure you use a denim needle if you make one.
I used Heather Ross's new line- Far, Far Away II. Love it. The pattern calls for 1/2 yard of fabric, but I used two fat quarters for each of these backpacks.
I could only get Juliana to pose with her backpack. (I don't know why my photos of these turned out so blurry.) Felicity was too busy "Playing with toys." Horsies and castle playing come before taking staged pictures. Duh.
