My daughter had her third birthday this past weekend and she had talked non stop about a Dora backpack. (to clarify, not THE Dora backpack, but one with Dora on it).  She also wanted a yellow one which is incredibly hard to find, if impossible.  Dora backpacks are usually pink or purple, not yellow.  So, I made her one.  She loves it and I loved watching her open it!

I tried to get a close-up of the Dora patch.  It worked really well and I haven't had any trouble with it.

A view of the inside packed to the hilt with stuff in it. 

I put a zipper in the front panel of the bag for small items such as crayons, markers, etc...the inside is fully lined, but no pockets.  I didn't want a bag too difficult for her to handle.  You can find a more detailed description on my blog with a link to a pattern that is similar to my bag.  I didn't use the pattern but it would work just as well. Happy crafting folks and let me know what you think...

A fantastic backpack. Cheesy She will get a lot of use out of that.

That is awesome - I will keep it in mind for my step daughter

If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than 'please',I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.
