Birthday Backpack Sewing
When I made River his backpack (which he loves and wears everywhere) in November I also made a couple more for a niece and nephew with birthdays on the horizon.
The birthdays have passed and here are their backpacks.
For my nephew I made a backpack similar to River's but with a different reverse side fabric, this one another airplane fabric. Other than that, the two are identical.
Given the chance to sew for a young girl I wasn't going with airplanes! Instead I used this wonderful red MoMo Wonderland fabric. The reverse side is a subtler blue green floral.
I had so much fun making these, though it had been a while so my recollection of the order of operations and measurements was a little faded. It all worked out in the end though.
