My son needed a bigger backpack to tote all of his toys around in. And there might have been an incident at preschool where he attempted to acquire a Dora backpack from a gal in class. Maybe. Something like that.
So, we went into mommy’s fabric stash to find a suitable fabric to make Little Moore his own “Pack-pack.” I let him pick what he liked best. Surprisingly, he chose a fabric covered in trucks. Which isn’t really the surprising part – the surprising part is that he had a quilt made out of this fabric in his nursery when he was an infant. I wonder if it made some kind of impression? Though, he probably just likes trucks.
Well, it took a couple weeks for me to finish, between several other projects, but it DID get finished. No fancy tutorial or step-by-step. I decided to design it as I went, and there are plenty of flaws, so you’d be better served by scouring the internet for a “real” backpack pattern. Or even grabbing an old backpack to use as a pattern.
Though this sucker isn’t perfect, it does the job. And LM knows that “mommy made it.” Just for him. With love. Which is what it is all about…
