it doesn't get much cuter

So, this weekend I was able to whip up this adorable Toddler Backpack.

First, we have the happy picture:

Then, a meltdown begins:

Finally, it's just a puddle of melting boy on the floor:

Anyway, I absolutely LOVE how this came out! The pattern was very straightforward and easy to read. The pattern calls for a medium to heavy weight fabric but I made things a bit harder on myself by choosing a light weight cotton fabric. I wanted the backpack to really hold its shape so I lined it with heavy weight interfacing. Then, to hide the interfacing on the inside, I had to use another piece of light weight fabric. This made for some thick sewing but my machine handled it just fine.
