DIY Toddler Backpack

Even though I only sewed clothes during KCW, I have had time since to finish a toddler backpack for Henry. I just think it's so cute and so fun. I'm hoping he'll start carrying some of his own stuff. I used the Back to School Backpack Tutorial by Hart and Sew. It was a surprisingly not to hard and came together quickly!
Henry loves playing with it already. He likes putting things in and taking things out, but he has yet to put it on his shoulders. Classic child, right?
I used some arrow fabric I found on fabric.com a couple months ago. The orange fabric I won from a giveaway a couple years ago, and I'm finally using it. The brown edging is faux leather that I cut and used as trim. I interfaced every single piece so that it's durable for lots of use.
I love that you can see yellow crayon on the wall done by Henry. I didn't notice it until I was typing this post!
I love all the different pockets and that it's fully lined. I'm sure Henry will love it once he puts it on and realizes he can be like daddy going to school.

  4. Great project! The fabric is fabulous. And those Mr. Clean sponges will take crayon off anything- though I use them sparingly because the fact that they take crayon of everything really freaks me out, what is in those things! lol
