My daughter liked my carry along bags but, she wanted me to do a bookbag for her that can fit her coloring books and folders so I came out with this here.

Look at that cheesy smile lol


 Front with flap open


I mainly went by the width and height of a large school folder. My daughter picked the colors. And we both got to work together I had her practicing some single stitches showing her how to work the yarn. She's only 5 years old but, I can say proud to say she can do single stitches.

I added a buckle which that was what she wanted. Did some little ruffles around the bookbag straps and around the flap. Put a little hook holder at the top. Was going to put fabric in it but, she said she didn't want it. But, going to do her another bookbag with fabric in it. I think it would hold up it's weight more with books and folders if it had fabric in it.

There you have it.

Again didn't follow a pattern did this my own.

Thanks for looking

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Hehehe!  She's obviously very pleased with her new pack!  You should be proud, it's super cute and obviously just what your "customer" wanted.
