Les Fleurs Toddler Backpack

Lottie's been going to a fantastic preschool a few mornings a week since April, so she is long overdue for her own backpack! She doesn't usually see the big kids getting on the bus, but a snow delay this week left her in tears for one of her own. The timing was perfect because I had just cut this one that I've had on my to-do pile for months.

This is Made By Rae's Toddler Backpack, which I also made for Louisa and Leo.

I used Cotton and Steel fabric from the beloved Rifle Paper Co.'s Les Fleurs line (rosa floral canvas in natural), and Rashida Coleman-Hale's Mochi line (canvas in scattered pink). Both are a cotton-linen blend and a little bit lightweight, so I interfaced everything with a medium/heavy weight interfacing.

The lining is also from the Les Fleurs line, Bon Voyage Periwinkle. I liked the travel theme inside because the kids have been using these bags for road trip supplies well beyond toddlerhood. I put her name and my phone number inside with some iron-on transfer printer paper.

The only alteration to the pattern was to add an exterior slip pocket on one side and an elastic pocket on the other.

I highly recommend this pattern. It is much quicker than it might look!

And Lottie loves it! Wouldn't you love a Rifle Paper backpack, too? Thanks for reading!

p.s. With I could take credit for Lottie's dress but it is from Hanna Andersson.
