My oldest nephew is turning 3. THREE. Old enough to want to haul all of his beloved books and cars around. So when I found Made by Rae's toddler backpack pattern, I knew it was the perfect gift to make for him.
*nephew meaning my close friend's kid.
His dad is a longtime friend of mine, and he is also an architect. So I knew I needed to appeal to his sense of design. So when I found this fabric- I nearly died.
Look- piping AND a zipper??
...and a lining. Plus, I scotch guarded it. Boys and mud are BFF's.
Such cute straps!
I filled it with art supplies, books, and some Cars toys. Because Lightning McQueen and Mack are his favorite characters ever.
