My niece, Little Miss Lou, recently began an important new adventure. She now attends pre-school two mornings per week. She won't know this for several years but the right accessories are so very important. To help with that I recently spent a quiet Monday evening putting together the perfect toddler sized backpack. I modified the backpack in Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing and used bright, fun fabrics from American Jane for Moda. This little backpack is now often filled to overflowing with the essentials: books and a sippy cup. For this project, I would have to give myself an A+!
