So a big hooray for me! I made something by following a pattern! There was a lot of sewing language that kept tripping me up, but in the end, I came out with a pretty cute little backpack. I hope Lola looks back at her pictures one day and thinks it is just as cool and is glad I didn’t send her to preschool with an Elmo one… she will thank me one day. ;)
So here it is!
I wasn’t in a girly mood when I made it… I am sure you can tell. I love the blue fabric with the itty bitty flowers on it. Adjustable straps and a crayon pocket (or any type of pocket!)
Lola testing it out! Good size, huh? It seems to hold a good amount!
Inside is pretty too!
She looks soooo big!
Here is the boy lunch box I bought her. I wanted this shape exactly and this is all I could find… still on the look out for another, BUT I made it prettier…
After: Ignore the pins- glue still drying.
Added ruffles to the handle, a ruffled L, and hearts to try and make it look more girly… I actually really like it now and the best part is- only cost $3.50 (insulated too!)!
I think I have just fallen in love with sewing! I seriously can’t wait to teach Lola too one day!
