Toddler backpack


A few months ago I purchase this little inexpensive backpack for Oakleigh and embroidered her name on it.
I guess it's true - you get what you pay for.
Both zippers broke pretty much right away and she could no longer use it.


Well.......

I found this great toddler backpack tutorial from Indietutes and decided to try it.

This was THE easiest little backpack to make.

I did make a few tiny changes from her tutorial.....
I used prequilted fabric - no interfacing necessary.
I also wanted to experiment with the handles a bit.
I cut the fabric strips the width I needed and just serged down the raw edges.
I then added a few straight stitches down the middle of the handle for sturdiness. 


It worked!

Thanks so much for the link because it's so beautiful
I wish to understand how to do it because my english is so short and it's seems difficult

A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E! Hah...easy for you maybe! I just might have to give it a try, but it wouldn't be as cute without the embroidery. Maybe if you sold something like this on ETSY...just sayin'!

You know that I am not going to quit bugging you about this, right?! LOL!

P.S. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving all the sweet comments!
