i’ve been making things for the upcoming Japan trip. very first thing I wanted make was a backpack for my little one, so that I didn’t have to carry her books and toys while we travel.
so here it is, it is all done and ready to be packed up with all the goodies!
I added a pocket on inside and outside of the backpack and embroidered around the butterfly print. also made a bottle holder by simply adding a band with elastic inside of the backpack so the bottle stays upright. it has an extra cushion of thicker interface on the back and bottom of the backpack for comfort and durability.
it was my first time using piping, and it was great. I think that is what give the backpack the finished look.
cotton, canvas, zipper
