Toddler Backpack: Little J's Dump Truck Backpack

Here it is!  Little J's Backpack is finally done and shipped down south.
I love making these backpacks.  Again, I used a pattern from Made by Rae.  I modified the pattern a bit as little J's mom wanted a bigger pack.  He is going to preschool and the school wants the kids to have backpacks that will fit an 8.5" x 11" folder.   Hopefully the school doesn't expect a pre-schooler to carry a lot in their packs.  Their little bodies are still growing!!

Here is the front view

Large side pocket

I modified the pattern slightly:  1) slightly larger straps and 2) backpack connectors instead of D rings.  

Quilted bottom

Lined with hippo fabric and includes an inner pocket.
I included a small velcro tab. 

Couldn't resist putting Cheeky Monkey's spiderman book in the pocket.  

Memo to me:  Must make another one for Cheeky Monkey

Time to take a break and watch some TV!
