I made this a year ago for my preschooler. It took about two days because my preschooler was "helping" me sew. Even with the "help" this was fairly easy to piece together. I wasn't sure how well it would hold up with my active daughter, but it has worked great. My daughter has taken her baby doll everywhere in this backpack; from hiking in the Rockies to Disney World. Yet, the backpack is still going strong and still hold her baby doll. My sister was so impressed she asked me to make one for her youngest child this summer. I was originally impressed with how easy the pattern was to make. I'm now impressed with how well the pattern was designed.
