Quickest, Easy to Make Backpack.

I just bought this pattern yesterday morning, and started to make it late afternoon. I completed it in an hour and a half including cutting it out and reading through the pattern. It was so easy and the instructions were very clear and concise. It's great when you have the photos' in the pattern as it helps to visualize sometimes. I made mine without the little parachute buckles and it fit my American girl doll perfectly. I really loved this pattern and was so impressed with how easy and quickly this backpack was to make up. I used white denim and twill fabrics and a cotton fabric that I just doubled up on as I was out of interfacing and it worked out fine. I also, only had an 8 inch zipper on hand and it didn't effect the way the pattern worked out either. It turned out perfectly! If you want a really easy, sweet and authentic looking backpack pattern, this one is ideal. Can't go wrong. K. Jones, NB, Canada

Doll backpacks

Loved doing them Learned some tricks as I went along which made them easier and better. I used fusible fleece and ironed it onto all my main pieces so I could use cotton fabric . Worked well

Heading to Grandmas back pack

I thought this was a fun project with easy to follow instructions and not difficult to make. Really pleased with the way it turned out. I didn't use the pattern for the decals as I wanted it for a school back pack. I'd recommend this pattern!
