Kids Backpacks!

I can finally show you the backpacks I made for my niece and nephew in California, as I shipped them off Thursday via Priority Mail, so the recipients have got to have them by now.  These are a quick and easy project and the result is a kid-friendly, soft-sided backpack that is oh-so-washable.  I love that the backpack stays closed while being worn and that there is a good-sized outside pocket.  I used Kwik Sew 2379 (view C) and these are the 3rd and 4th time I've made this backpack and I still love how it turns out.
Two backpacks, plus to little zippered pouches...

Still, judge for yourself:
Boy stuff!
  My nephew got this cute little superhero version.

Love the lining, don't you?
I added a little zipper closure keychain bag in the same fabrics.  (Kids love little pouches and bags for their important "stuff".)

Love the mango lining...it is so cute in real life.
My niece got this very girly Hawaiian print, with the coordinating lining.   It is sooo pink!

Love the white vinyl and cording...
I made a little zippered keychain bag for her, too.

Better view of the little pouches.
I am so pleased with how these both turned out.  I hope the kids get a lot of pleasure from them.
