This one was not my idea. If you remember my Never Say Never – Bags post, then you know that bags aren’t exactly my thing.
It started at N’s birthday. (insert flashback music here)….
N got a Batman back pack for his birthday. And he was beside himself proud of that bag. Nope I didn’t make it. It came from the store no assembly required.
After all the hullabaloo of the party was over, M picked up the back pack, turned to me with a wistful look on her face and stated “I NEED Elmo back pack.”
Well what’s a poor mom to do when confronted with THAT?
Figure out how to make a back pack. That’s what!
I wanted something simple. I didn’t have a ton of time to make a super complicated back pack.
I wanted something smallish. She has a tendency to fill bags to capacity and then try carrying it.
I wanted something that SCREAMED Elmo. Duh.
When I found the Dora Backpack at At Second Street I knew I had a winner!!! I changed up the color to red and swapped out “Backpack’s” eyes and mouth for Elmo’s eyes, nose and mouth.
I can’t wait until she sees it. She’s going to go NUTS!
Two down and bunches to go!!!!
