toddler backpacks

I'm really proud of this one, guys. It came out just as well as I could have hoped. I've had it in mind for a while that I wanted to make my boys backpacks for Christmas. They are way into backpacks. I started looking around on etsy to see if anyone had attempted making one (of course, they had) and set to work designing my own. I ended up sketching three, all of which I'm dying to try. This is the first, "the newsie".  I used a scrap piece of fabric I had on hand so I could figure it out before ordering fabric to make them for the boys. If it looks familiar, this was the giveaway for my friend Megan's giveaway on Monday; but don't worry, they're soon to be available in my etsy shop :)

The backpack features adjustable, padded straps, a handle at the top, a side pocket and zippered closure. I can't wait to make more of these. I named the other two designs "the scout" and "the prepster" and I'm also dying to show those to you!
