Hugo’s backpack

Since it’s Back To School time again, adorable backpacks made with my Toddler Backpack Pattern have been popping up in my feed, so I thought I’d share these photos of Hugo with the original backpack I designed the pattern from (it used to be Elliot’s). I took these over a year ago but he still LOVES putting it on his back and parading around.

I love that lots of you are sewing cute little backpacks for your cute little cuties! It’s a fun way to make a backpack that is custom and unique, and since it’s possible to make this pattern for older kiddos too, it’s not just limited to toddlers or preschoolers (when we updated this pattern a few years ago, we included easy instructions for making it large enough for school-aged kids and 8.5×11 binders).

The canvas fabric I used for this backpack is now long gone and out of print, but the pattern is available in my shop!

  1. Rae, I’ve been following you and watching your kids grow up for years now. Seeing Hugo’s backpack made me smile today. Having grown kids in their 30s now, I remember the first time I saw the school buses on our town streets and realized I had no one in school anymore. It was a little bittersweet. But then I started working at a public school and started to have lots of school children in my life again. I still love the new-backpack, new-shoes feeling at the beginning of the school year. Thanks for posting this!
