This is a PDF pattern, printable at home, with 19 pages of photographs and instructions to make a backpack. It is small enough for a preschooler or kindergardener to wear without breaking their back, but Big Enough to hold all their essentials, including folders, a binder, and a lunch box.
The Backpack has padded straps(with fun fabric on the underside), a flap-front pocket (with optional velcro), and a hidden attached pouch (perfect for stashing lunch money; it can't fall out and get lost!).
Sizing / Finished Measurements:
sized to fit a preschool-early elementary child, or, with longer straps, an adult
1/2 yard non-directional fabric (1 yard if directional)
