The problem with toddlers who go to school is that it's hard to find backpacks that are their size. I came across this pattern awhile ago in a magazine and I thought it would be perfect for my little ones who go to a Mommy's Day Out program. It's big enough to fit a folder, a change of clothes and a small lunch bag, and small enough for them to carry all by themselves. It's a really simple pattern although a little time consuming. The bag is quilted all over then sewn together with 2 front pockets and drawstrings that double as straps.
I attached the name tag because everything has to have their name on it and because I had a little hinkey in that spot.
Now I just have to make Jack one.
