I whipped up this little backpack for my 3-year-old daughter to use as a carry-on bag for our vacation last week. I used a coloring book to get the approximate measurements and then completely winged it from there. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and my 3-year-old was pretty thrilled to have a backpack that was full of fun airplane toys.

I was able to make the bag itself from 2 Fat Quarters, plus scraps for the front pockets. I used fusible fleece to give the bag some shape, then embellished with colorful buttons. The flap closes with Velcro.

Front view:

I especially like the flowers on the lower left pocket.  Grin

Back view:

The buttons are just decorative on the straps. I sewed the straps several times to make sure they were sturdy, so the buttons just hide all those extra stitches.

Thanks for looking!
