On the scale of cuteness, it is very hard to beat a backpack made from a stuffed animal.  Really hard.

I've been excited about polka dots ever since the 1980s when Princess Diana brought them back into fashion.  My granddaughter TINKERBELL calls them "coca dots".  She and her Mom, my daughter PEPSI both share my love for polka dots.  The BEST thing about the Polka Dot Backpack?  It is soooo easy!  No sewing involved at all!!!

This Toddler Backpack comes with a free pattern.  The author made her backpack from a thrift store flour sack.  I've seen so many beautiful vintage prints in thrift stores.  Sheets, dresses, robes, tee shirts, curtains, you name it!  If you wanted to use a flour sack fabric, why not get some flour sack dish towels at Walmart?  Then you can stencil, stamp, embroider, or paint anything you want on your baby's backpack.
