Superhero Toddler Backpack

Little people like superheroes.  Sometimes they like them cutesy.


Sometimes they like them not-so-cutesy. 


They go nuts when they see them in real life.  This is Brampton Batman!


So it totally made sense when I was asked to make a superhero backpack.

My friend Jess wanted a backpack for her youngest son to add to her collection of backpacks.   Last year I made these backpacks for her little guy and her nephew.   Here's a picture of one of the bags from this past summer.  What a cutie!

 
This time she wanted something superhero-like.  We agreed on the design.


Then got the final approval


This is the part of the backpack making process that I like the most... getting it already ready to be sewn!


Here is the finished product


Side pockets - great for waterbottles, napkins, and other tiny things. 


The lining


Inside out


Bottoms up!  The bottom is quilted for extra stability.


As always, I use real backpack connectors


I made this backpack early this year when we still had snow on the ground.  It is so hard to take pictures without a lot of natural light .  It is doubly hard to take pictures of black with red.   While it may look like the backpack is some shade of grey/black, it is indeed black denim.  These pics were all taken with my Samsung phone which somehow worked out better than my Canon.  Go figure.


Happy Sewing!
