WOOHOO! I've never made my kids a backpack and it was time to check that item off my bucket-list. Though, I feel like there could be more in the future since it was really fun to sew.
I grabbed the Toddler Backpack pattern by Made By Rae when it was featured on the Friday Fiver for $5, yessssss.
During the last Sew Geeky sewalong I created a Mrs. Pacman dress for Lily. This time Archer was up, and with the theme being Marvel vs. Dc there was no way I could lose. He loves superheroes and plans his day around which one(s) he's pretending to be.
I wanted to play with the whole cape theme since his favorite superhero shirt is a Batman one that has a cape. I mean, this is his first year out of the nursery& he needs to start it off right! I took the cape off his shirt and used it as a template. Then I simply sandwiched it between the zipper and panel when adding the zipper after making sure it was centered. I also screen-printed the Batman logo onto the cape.
Now for the cute stuff...
I assume this is what is going on in Archer's imagination. :)
Notes on the pattern: If you aren't using nice & stiff fabric, use lots of interfacing so the backpack maintains it's shape.
