Backpack Madness!

From the sudden increase in toddler backpack pattern sales over the last couple of days, it seems many of you have decided it’s time to sew your kiddo a backpack so they can be stylin’ as they hop off the bus. Be sure to post them to the Toddler Backpack Pool (along with modifications, suggestions, and the fabric you used) so that we can all enjoy your handiwork!

Photo Cred (as with Spring Top Week, I assume that you’re OK with having your picture up on my blog if it’s in the pool; if not, please let me know ASAP!):

The question I’m getting the most right now is “Will you make a backpack for me?” and the answer, unfortunately, is no. Mr Rae is going back to work this week *tries to hide panicked look* so I have even less time than ever to sew. A few people have purchased a license to sell the backpacks, but most are planning to sell them to friends and classmates. However, I know of at least one Etsy shop where you can buy a custom backpack, so if your sewing skills are meager or you know you won’t have time, be sure to check it out:

And if anyone else has purchased a license to sell the backpacks and would like to be listed here, please let me know so I can send you a registration form and invite you to post photos in the Made By Rae Sellers Flickr Pool!

  2. Oh Wow…I also had a little thrill seeing my backpack on your blog (Little Red Riding Hood). Loved the pattern and love your blog!

  3. Ohhh, I remember that panicked feeling when my husband went back to work after #2! Love seeing all the backpacks!

  4. my friend called me up and said "your boys are on raes site!" yea, how fun, thanks for putting my backpacks up, and for the link I have already received one response…hope it leads to more.
    good luck this week home alone with the kids…I know you will be fine, you'll find out that your older child can do alot for you if you just ask.

  5. Don't worry Rae, my little one is 6 mos and the big guy is 3. I was sooooo scared when hubby went back to work…..but you know what, I've done so much sewing in the last 5 months it's insane!!! I don't know if it's crazy hormones or what, but I'm expecting you'll do just fine!
    Good luck with everything! :)

  6. I LOVE your site! I don't sew, but wanted to start and just made your licketysplit bag and LOVE it! Thanks so much for making something so adorable so accessible! I'm glad you're taking a break from physics so I have something to sew!

  7. Not sure if you will get this….however I love your blog…just found it! I would like to purchase your backpack pattern but wondered if you did a pdf version too and does it include instructions for a lining?
    Have a great day
