And a free pattern
My baby boy, started Kindergarten, for the very first time. He needed a small backpack to carry his essentials... you know... toy car... pacifier... toy train... leftover cookie... importante stuff!
I've been wanting to make a pattern for a while, and this seemed like the perfect project to start.
