We have some birthdays coming up so I decided to make a toddler backpack for the birthday boy to carry small items or books. I was going to make another car carrier, but the specific child I am sewing for likes to read a lot. I also really like to sew drawstring bags, haha.
- Two 10.5″ x 12″ pieces of outer fabric (this seems to be a good size for my 20 month old which is how I chose the size)
- Two 10.5″ x 12″ pieces of inner fabric (I did fleece because I wanted something thick for an inner with mine)
- Four 1.5″x14″ pieces of fabric for straps: I did two inner, two outer so the outer showed but the inner was soft towards his skin.
- Ribbon or tshirt yarn
