backpack doll #2

A couple of weeks ago a friend of mine asked if I would be willing to make a backpack doll for her niece and I jumped at the chance.  Since the moment I completed the first backpack doll, I have been anxiously waiting for an opportunity to try out some new ideas. 
The basic doll pattern stayed the same, but I revamped the backpack by scaling it down in size and making the straps adjustable. 
 As a fun touch, I created my own print design for the backpack fabric by using the end of a triangle ruler as a stamp. 

I really love how this one turned out, and the best part... it cost less than $2.00!

Because I was able to find all the fabric I needed in my stash and salvaged the strap hardware off of an old backpack, the only expense was the zipper.  

A one of a kind AND inexpensive gift - LOVE IT!


  1. That triangle print is so great!

  2. I wish you'd consider doing a doll pattern. These dolls are so cute!!!

  3. Will you offer sets like this in your shop?
