It's the perfect mini toddler size backpack, and the personalized felt letter on the front makes it especially fun for toddlers learning their letters as they easily recognize their pack. Plus you'll love that they start to carry their own toys and snacks. You might be able to finally retire that huge diaper bag!
Adhere the iron on adhesive to the back of your piece of felt. Print out a letter, pin, and cut the letter out of the adhesive-backed felt.
Cut your two 12 x 14 pieces of fabric. Remove paper from the felt letter and iron it onto the middle of one of your pieces.
Carefully sew around the shape of the letter with a contrasting color thread and with a long stitch length.
On the front piece, press with your iron ¼ inch around three sides, leaving one short side raw. Sew those three ironed sides down. Repeat with the back piece of the backpack.
On both the front and back piece, measure 2 ½'' from the top of the raw side and mark with a pen. Fold down ½ inch, press another 2'' to meet that pen mark you made.
Press and sew close to the edge of this seam. Repeat on the back piece. You've just made the loops that the cording will slide through to cinch the pack closed.
