Okay, I know I said that I was probably done sewing for the week, but I became obsessed with the idea of making a back pack, so, well, that’s what I did.
I used the Prudent Baby toddler back pack tutorial, and whipped this up mighty quick. I’m guessing that if you skipped the applique and had all your fabrics prepped, this is a 30 minute project. The pack will be perfect for his first airplane ride, which could be coming up sooner than later.
The airplane (an idea I borrowed from Meg) is totally wonky, kind of a cross-between a torpedo and whale, but seriously stick figures are hard for me to draw. Oh, and yes, he is wearing those robot pants and navy blue nautical t-shirt. I’m so pleased that both outfits can be mixed and matched.

Whew! Time to put my house back together, tackle that mountain of laundry and fill the fridge – this space will more than likely be silent this week. Thank you Meg for hosting another amazing challenge. For more inspiration, be sure to check out the Flickr group. One could say it’s blowin’ up.
