We are taking a plane trip this summer out to Utah for a family reunion and I’ve been gathering things for the girls to carry in their backpacks-the older two at least. I figured I’d carry Ava’s stuff…but the second she saw that they were getting backpacks…well you know the drill. She insisted on one of her own. I could barely find a backpack small enough for Charlotte, but I remembered this free pattern and tute that I had used before, so I looked it up, and had it sewn up in a jiffy for our kraken! She watched me make it and was so thrilled for her own bak-bak!

I used some precious Heather Ross canvas (from the Far Far Away 2 line) that I’d been hoarding for years, actually purchased to make Sadie a backpack for preschool, but she didn’t really need one so it never got made.

It took only about a 1/2 yard and I didn’t need interfacing at all.

    Oh my gosh, she is just freakishly cute. My daughter calls it her “back-ack” I can’t bring myself to correct her. Nothin’ cuter in my book than little kids with back-acks & pigtails!

  7. So cute! My got my daughter to carry around her own diaper changing supplies when she was 1 1/2 because we put them in a cute little backpack. I was kicking myself for not making my boys carry their stuff around when they were little! πŸ™‚
