The Dora Backpack

The big third birthday approaches. And look who is very excited to be a present!

And map too!

Even a Star Pocket, filled with stars.

I am just tickled at my sew-fu on this project. It is lined with thermolam fleece to make it very sturdy (plus a fabric lining). The flap closes with a velcro tab, which I thought would be easy for little 3 year old fingers. My favorite part was the map! I scanned it in from one of our books and printed it onto colorfast, washable inkjet fabric.

I can't wait to see how Bella will look with it on!

  1. Absolutely fabulous! She will most certainly flip when she sees it! Great job!

  2. I love this! Did you make the pattern yourself, or did you buy it? My daughter is turning 3 next month and would be thrilled with one of these. Would you mind sharing?

  3. I did make up the pattern as I went along. I couldn't find a good Backpack pattern to use. I'd be happy to answer any questions if you're planning on making one! Good luck!

  4. Would you post about how you made these? I'm looking for patterns now and can't find anything helpful. And yours are just adorable! Plus, it's the first time I've seen the stars included. Perfect!
