I kept sending Ulysses to school with plastic bags and saw this backpack and couldn’t resist trying to replicate it. I just eyeballed the pattern based off of her pictures (sorry! I’m not very good at following instructions!) and it turned out really well! I forgot the piping at the side seams, but other than that I think it got pretty close. I bought some of this Japanese train fabric and have been saving it. I managed to get the bag made just as he is starting to get into trains. It was so fun putting some real effort into a project and not half-a%^ing it, like I tried to do in the first place.
I set out to make a backpack but was convinced a tote bag would be better and made this, which I instantly tore apart after trying it on the little guy one time. Backpacks are much more suitable, let me tell you.
