So, back to the backpack….
We decided to put little punk in a once a week class at a local gymnastics (well, really just fun) spot in our town. She is so excited to start her own ‘school’. It’s a 3.5 hour class that gives all the moms just enough time to get their errands done and maybe…. just maybe, wish that it lasted a little longer…
The backpack pattern is from Made By Rae and is so easy to make. I ended up making my own piping using a thicker cord than the standard size. I wanted the contrast to be big and bold and pop! It took a bit more time, but is totally worth the effort. It makes such a difference when you can add that extra spice!
The fabric is a cheap home dec from Joann’s and reminds me of the Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku line. The graphic lollipops paired with the bold zebra is music to my eyes. I added a front pocket panel with a stitch down the middle to create two separate compartments for her necessities…sunglasses and chapstick and rocks…whatever the mood strikes :)
Well, we’re off to school!
Tell me, have you made the Made By Rae Backpack yet?
You can see my previous version HERE! (I guess I like zebra backpacks!)
