Beautiful Back to School project!

This girl backpack is quilted, has ribbons & buttons, has contrast front cover, is covered with flowers ~ in one word: is cutter than a button.

I love this sweet quilted backpack and just know that thousands of young girls would love their mom to make this for them. (And can imagine moms making 4 of these simultaneously as they want one for them selves, one for their best friends and then have some to give a way as presents later on in the year…)

This backpack seems a bit sturdier than the usual one with just a drawstring thanks to both the quilting and its construction.

  3. Hi, just found your site this morning and I’m absolutely loving it. Oddly though, I’ve been waiting for this back pack pattern to download for almost an hour. This doesn’t usually happen on my end of things. Just thought you might want a heads up. Hopefully all is well with your site.
