OMG, that is so cute and pretty.  You did a fabulous job.  Please, please, please can you do a tute for us.   Grin  It's just wonderful.  I love the inside and I bet your lil' one is so proud.  The fabric is beautiful, too.  Did you have to use iron-on interfacing or is the fabric stiff enough.  I made a couple and the fabric I chose just didn't hold up well.  With your permission may I copy the pics and try and figure out how to make one for myself?  I just love it.

Addendum:  I just read in the rules that I shouldn't demand a tute.  I could change or take this out but I really would like to see how you did this.  And maybe other might like that too.  So please don't be offended by my request  I really mean it as a complement. Grin

i never knew it was against the rules to ask for tut's. how else are you suppose to request them?

 will definitely try to do one.

thank you everyone!

she wore it to school today for teh first time, and we have success!!!! it didn't fall off her shoulders ( a fear i had that i didn't sew teh straps on right), she didn't complain about wearing the bookbag, i think she even forgot she was wearing it. and those kangaroo pockets in the front came in really handy, she was carrying her favorite little bear and she kept dropping it, so i put it in the pocket!

way cute..love the colors... I made a backpack without a pattern as well... worked out great ....I did just what my daughter needed toooooo...

and this is exactly why i wanted to make it for her. I bought her 2 bookbags already, one was too small, her folders wouldn't fit, the other one was too big and uncomfortable. making it myself i was ale to make it exactly how i needed it.

thanks everyone.

i couldn't find the print i originally had in mind, i really had my heart set on lime green solid, and a pattern print of lime green and hot pink.

but i'm kind of glad she's not all pink, like she usually is.

made my daughter a bookbag, both she and I love it. it has magnetic closures because i wanted it to be easy for her to open & close it ( she's 5 ) and it's elastic in the front so it keepks the stuff from falling out. the front has a kangaroo pockets for tissues and such. and best off all, the shoulder straps are soft cotton and padded, since the biggest complaint of store-bought bookbags is how much they hurt her shoulders.

i didn't use a pattern, just went along with it after a rough sketch of main ideas.
 Embarrassed the bow is still pinned on, i'll sew it on eventually.

<--- doesn't get the whole " must remain a secret". i say share the joy!

I don't get it, either. I have friends like that - won't share a recipe EVER. So, I google, find the recipe, then improve it... because who ever follows recipes exactly, anyway?!

I secretly think (ok, not so secretly, since I'm posting it on a public forum), that many, though not all, of the people who won't share recipes are simply afraid that someone else might actually be able to make something as good as they can. Competetive spirit, if you will. And I wager, that a good number of those people... can only cook like... one or two items really well... so to share the secret would be to lose the one thing they excel at?

 Wink i'm with you!

I swoon over him.
