This toddler backpack was made especially for Baby Bunny. I spent a lot of time trying to decide between his favourites: choo choo train, buses, garbage truck, and cars. Every time I make a backpack, he always asks if it's for him so this time, I designed this one especially for him.
My favourite part of this backpack is the label placement. Looks great as the back light. If I had the foresight to shift the bulldozer to the right, I would have placed the label right above the shovel.
Here are the side views. I decided to do a flat pocket instead of an elasticized pocket. I like that it looks sleek but next time, I'll put in 1 or even 2 elasticized pockets. The superheroes need a place to go.
I also found this cool stars fabric at my local sewing shop. So of course I had to have it and love how the lining turned out.
Here is a pic of the backpack inside out so you can see the lining. It's such a happy print! If the fabric was a heavier weight, I would use it as my outer fabric.
I hid a little "m" at the back. It's small enough not to be too noticeable.
It's so nice to make things for your kids - especially when they are so happy to see it. The little guy knew I made it for him and said "Mama made it!".
Not even 24 hours after I gave him the backpack, I saw this...
and then this! Aah!! The horror!
The good news is that pen ink comes out really easily with a bit of hairspray. Phew!
