Seems like I'm always making things for my shop but this backpack was a "pleasure" sew. I made it for my cousin in-law's daughter for her 1st birthday. I think our kids are second cousins??
I am such a big fan of plaid. I hope she will be too. She's still little so hopefully she will use it as she becomes more independent.
I made this while I was sewing Molly's Pink Owl toddler backpack. As you can see, I used a bluer (is that a word?) dark denim.
I like that the plaid gives it the appearance of having more texture. Don't ask me why I made it cross eyed. I must've been sewing late at night!
I did a flat side pocket and an A initial. I used a beige colour for the piping and webbing that I don't normally use for the shop.
Another point to note is that I now close off the piping so that it's more seamless looking. Previously, I followed Rae's pattern instructions but I think this looks much better.
I'm no longer doing it the old way.
Here's the back view
I lined it with an owl print and inserted a large flat inner pocket. So great for keeping diapers separate from other things. Yes Mamas, your little one can carry his or her own diapers and a small pack of wipes. This means you can wear a normal purse again. Yessss!!!!
I added a green bias tape to finish it up.
And here's another shot
