Superhero Toddler Backpack
Sometimes they like them not-so-cutesy.
They go nuts when they see them in real life. This is Brampton Batman!
So it totally made sense when I was asked to make a superhero backpack.
My friend Jess wanted a backpack for her youngest son to add to her collection of backpacks. Last year I made these backpacks for her little guy and her nephew. Here's a picture of one of the bags from this past summer. What a cutie!
This time she wanted something superhero-like. We agreed on the design.
Then got the final approval
This is the part of the backpack making process that I like the most... getting it already ready to be sewn!
Here is the finished product
Side pockets - great for waterbottles, napkins, and other tiny things.
Bottoms up! The bottom is quilted for extra stability.
As always, I use real backpack connectors
I made this backpack early this year when we still had snow on the ground. It is so hard to take pictures without a lot of natural light . It is doubly hard to take pictures of black with red. While it may look like the backpack is some shade of grey/black, it is indeed black denim. These pics were all taken with my Samsung phone which somehow worked out better than my Canon. Go figure.
