DIY Toddler Backpack
The fabric and hardware for this DIY toddler backpack project was provided by The Ribbon Retreat.
You will need 1/2 yard of exterior and 1/2 yard interior fabric. If you want to add in more fabrics, as I did, you will need various scraps or fat quarters. For this project I used Girl Crazy by Dani for Riley Blake.
You will also need fusible fleece, medium weight interfacing, one magnetic snap, 2 rings and 2 slides and one lobster clasp.
This pattern is now available in my Etsy shop: Child Sized Backpack pattern
