A couple of Elsie's little friends turned 5 recently and so we were in need of special presents to give. I've had my eye on Julie's knitted cupcakes pattern for a while now, and of course I had the delicious cupcake fabric Caroline kindly sent me so I put the two together into a modified and miniaturised Lotta Jansdotter backpack:
These are lined and have an internal pocket in chocolatey cupcake material (I didn't manage to get a picture of that).
I like her ideas but I have to say she does make things far more complicated than they need to be. Maybe I should say these are inspired by hers because by the time I had changed the instructions, changed the dimensions, lined it and pocketed it about the only original feature left was the attachment of the straps. And I'm planning to change that next time too!
I can see more of these in my future - both my two are asking for them and I have two more lined up as gifts for next week ...
