My only child is switching from a sitter to a preschool next month, so I get to make him a back pack to carry his blanket and other daily essentials! It's an area I find lacking on Etsy, which is good, I suppose, for it removes the temptation to shop and places the burden of creation on my broad mommy shoulders. I've been making some rough sketches, and on Monday we'll go fabric shopping. I'm half-dreading, half-antsy to see what fabric choices he makes. I'll post pictures when the project is complete.
