Toddler Backpack

I made this backpack for my 1 year old son based on a pattern and tutorial at indietutes.

In my version, I created a front pocket and inside pocket from a thrifted Spiderman pillowcase. I also added a zipper as my son has zipper skills. At the top of the bag I added a loop as a handle and a small loop on the inside to hold his toy keys.


I made this play wallet for my son based on a tutorial and pattern posted on sewing.about.com

My version included a section to hold bills and did not use bias tape for binding.
