Backpack, Backpack!

Backpack, Backpack!

Pattern Description:

My daughter LOVES Dora the Explorer! So, for her birthday, I knew she'd want her very own backpack . . . and, so would all of her friends. So, I drafted this pattern by combining several patterns I found online along with my own drawings and sewed 6 backpacks!

I hope you and the children in your life enjoy this as much as my daughter has!
