Backpacks Are BACK....

 and they're better than before!

Last year, I sized up the Made by Rae Toddler Backpack for my kindergartener.  And now, for a limited time, I have a few for sale in my etsy shop.

Here are a few of the features of this enlarged and improved backpack.
Backpacks are fully lined with a medium weight cotton canvas and all seams are serged for extra durability.
 Each backpack has a 14 inch, heavyweight, sport zipper which is more durable and also a little easier to zip.

 These packs are 13.5 inches tall, 11.5 inches wide, and 4.25 inches deep.  The size fits a folder, lunch box, and snack pack perfectly.
Here the backpacks are shown on an almost 7 year old and almost 5 year old.  I wanted the backpack to be big enough to hold the essentials, but also small enough to be manageable on the bus and at school.

So get them while they last!


  1. hi, i just purchased this pattern and was wondering if,in your experience, fused cotton/linen or quilting cotton would be durable enough for the outside, or do you recommend using a home dec/canvas weight? thanks so much. your packs are beautiful!

    1. I always use a heavy weight fusible interfacing and get good results with both quilting weight cottons and home dec weight fabrics. As for durability, all the ones I've made for my kids I've just happened to use home dec weight fabric and they've held up well, even with machine washing. Hope that helps.
