Little Collector Backpack PDF Sewing Pattern

Rated 4.00 out of 5 based on 1 customer rating
(1 customer review)


The Little Collector Backpack is a simple PDF sewing pattern for a kid’s backpack. This backpack features all easy to manipulate features, like a drawstring/Velcro closure, and envelope-style pocket. The pocket and bottom of the bag can be mesh, allowing all the dirt and sand to stay outside when your child collects all their treasures!

A finished bag measures 12″ tall and features adjustable straps, it fit comfortably from age 2-teens. Fully encased seams so no crevices or crannies for dirt and mud to hide.

Please note the wings and bow add-on is not included in the pattern, it was a creative embellishment
