At the end of last year, I made a tan train toddler backpack for Christy's son. She liked it so much, that she decided to order another one, this time for her daughter. It was a pleasure to work with her again.
She decided on a pink owl backpack. (Excellent choice!! :o))
Here's a pic of us figuring out eye colour and beak/feet colours. I love it when Moms like to work with me on the design. Even when it's something small like figuring out eye colour or tiny details like the beak colour, I love it when they give me input!
The tan beak won out over yellow or dark brown.
There's an elasticized pocket on one side and a big "M" on the other. The "M" was done using "Cooper Black" font.
Here's a pic of the back. I used a dark brown piping, bias tape, zipper and webbing. If only the backpack connectors came in dark brown...
The quilted bottom
Here's the lining trimmed with navy bias tape.
I would have loved to do some outdoor pictures but we have so much snow and ice everywhere. I am so ready for spring!
