I can hardly believe that some kids are already back in school! August school seems totally wrong to me, especially since it’s just starting to feel like summer here in the Midwest. Some of you have been thinking ahead though and have already been sewing backpacks using my Toddler Backpack Pattern for the coming school year. I love the print combos on this one. Are those tiny polka dots on the aqua fabric? Why yes, they are.
I’m always a sucker for transportation prints. Kokka really pulls out all the stops with the Echino line (the two on either side below). Don’t you think someone needs to make a backpack Right. Now. with the scooter print??And those bicycles in the middle are just about the best; they look sweet with orange piping.
Here are some playful versions. The ruffles on the top right are amazing. Who needs pockets when you can have ruffles?
The PDF pattern also comes with instructions to enlarge the backpack to fit school-aged children like this one:
If you just don’t have enough sewing machine hours between now and when your littles go back to school, take a look at the Made By Rae Sellers Pool on Flickr! You’ll find some awesome backpacks for sale there, with links to registered sellers’ shops.
