Our little granddaughter, Katie, is getting so big! It’s definitely time for her to have her own Playdate Backpack. Her Uncle Charlie (Yes, Charlie’s been an uncle since he was one!) uses his every time we go out. It’s perfect for carrying all of his little essential toddler/preschooler things. Katie’s mama requested owl fabric for her backpack, and I happened to have this sweet pink Japanese owl fabric hiding in my stash. I think it mixes perfectly with the larger print owls from Jenn Ski’s Ten Little Things collection. I can’t wait to see what Katie and her mama think of it! I love the funky orange straps and the green snap hidden under the flap!
I made 1 of these so far for my son- along with the messenger bag for my daughter. I LOVE how they came out. Of course they were super simple to put together and came out lovely. My husband was super impressed! I love that your patterns make my sewing look so professional. They are simple and yet detailed and thorough. Most of our Christmas this year was made with Fishsticks patterns- many that we were trying out for the 1st time and they were a HUGE success! I did change a few little things- instead of making 1″ pockets (for the crayons) on the inside, I did 2″- so my little guy can carry his cars around. And on 1 of the messenger bags I only use 2 fabrics instead of 3 🙂 I love how easy and versatile these patterns are!
