packback

Confession: I cheated.
I was going to make Imogen a fancy backpack from an Oliver+S book, but I decided the pattern was a little too difficult for my current skills. I have the pieces cut out...it will be made...eventually. And without a time pressure (I "needed" to finish it for her first day back to preschool).

Lucky for me, Purl Soho sent out an email with this pattern. Done.

I'm guessing Immie is just as happy with this "packback"as she would have been with the other one.

Looks lovely! How was her first day at school? My own little one started recently too, and I was so ready for her to come in touting a cute little backpack when I learned that she doesn't actually need to bring anything to school with her, so there's no need for a backpack!

Boo. :)

Aw, I know. The backpack is really not necessary, but Immie really wanted one for some reason. She brings her doll and a mini pig stuffed animal.

Hey, if she wants to take hr doll and mini pig then it's totally necessary! :)

Gotta have the important stuff. When my niece started school, she had a pink "packpack", which also contained a little pink stuffed piggie. She didn't have such a cool sweater, though....

She looks so cute with her little backpack and I love her top, it's so beautiful.
Thank you for popping over and admiring my dress. I'm quite pleased with it myself!
