Thanks for entering! This giveaway is now closed. Our next giveaway will open tomorrow morning at 6 am eastern.

On the tenth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…ten lords-a-leaping, nine ladies dancing, eight maids-a-milking, seven swans-a-swimming, six geese-a-laying, five golden rings, four colly birds, three French hens, two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree!

…and Rae gave to me a Toddler Backpack Sewing pattern!


This backpack is designed for tiny backs and little shoulders: perfect for toddlers to pack their toys and treasures for play dates and excursions.  Since you probably won’t be able to stop at making just one, this pattern does include instructions to enlarge the backpack to fit school-aged children.

There are countless renditions of the Toddler Backpack in its dedicated Flickr Pool; the variety and attention to detail are astonishing!  I love how some have added side pockets for water bottles, front zip pockets, appliqued animals, the list goes on.


1. Owls 2. Quilted, 3. Bicycles, 4. Doctor Who

The selection of photos above were taken from the Toddler Backpacks Flickr Pool.

Leave one comment on this post before 10 pm EST tonight for your chance to win this little backpack sewing pattern. The winner will be randomly selected, contacted via email, and will receive a PDF copy of the Toddler Backpack Sewing Pattern; all winners will be posted at the end of this series as well. Void where prohibited by law.

    I thrifted my daughters bag for day care… I hate buying all that licensed, gender specific, crap. It is a little small though. A mummy made back pack would be an awesome alternative… Though i’d probably use some vintage holly Hobbie fabric to make it which is maybe just a bit hypocritical….. It’s tough being a mum lol
