I saw these backpacks for my children. They screamed and ran around the room when they realized these are their backpacks. :-)

They look great! I love the flower trim on your daughters and particularly how you sewed it on the straps as well as the front of the bag.
Did you use a pattern or are they your own design?

The design came from my mind. I really love them. This week we were on holiday and the kids uses the backpacks. They worked perfect!

The size of the smallest one (with flowers) is about 18cmx15cm (7.5"x6")
The "soldier" version is about 25cmx30cm. (10"x12")

One thing what I did not mention: one of my sons seems to be left-handed. So I made a right-handed and a left-handed backpack. The zip is mirrored. This is the only difference. Wink

And yes, they screamed!!! soooo loud what you cannot imagine!!! Cheesy
