I wanted to make a backpack for my girls to use on vacation.
Something that could hold things that would keep their attention
yet cute and girly enough that they'd want to wear it.
Because let's face it, I have girly girls.
This tutorial was over at U Handbag.
They have some pretty cute bags there and the backpack tutorial
looks pretty well written.
I'm not sure about the drawstring closure for my girls, though.
And checkout this adorable backpack pattern
I saw at my favorite sewing store.
Alas, the book was over $30 and although full of adorable patterns
there weren't many I would have used.
You can check it out here at Melly & Me.
This is one adorable backpack.
Apparently a cultural icon in Japan
as all school children wear them.
Found it over at Babesta
but considering the $400(!!!!!for a kids' backpack!!!) price tags, I'll have to pass.
I found a cute pattern at
and only $6
And isn't this cute?
A little scrapbook album in the shape of a backpack.
If only I was a scrapper.
All very cute.
But not quite right.
So I'm making one.
Jumping in the deep in of the fabric pool.
And I'm working on a tutorial to go with it.
Because maybe you'd like to make a backpack too.
Wish me luck!
PS this isn't on my spring to finish list
but it's way more fun (:
