Just in time to join the Celebrate The Boy festival, here is the Steggie Back Pack.
It is a cute pattern and include the all important Steggie Spikes, two small side pockets, two loops so important things such as compasses and fossil finding tools can be attached and a roomy main compartment which is big enough to fit in a pair of PJ's, toothbrush, clean undies, a book and a couple of small toys.
It is just the right size to use as a day pack when you are off out exploring or as an overnight bag.
Also, hidden under the paws are phone number and name tags, hidden out of public view but handy if your little explorer gets lost.
The straps are adjustable and so it should comfortably fit 3 - 6 year olds, Ebi-kun is now 5 and it will last him quite a bit longer.
Ebi-kun has received a lot of attention when wearing his bag out and about,
and one of our friends fathers wants one for himself!
To make your own you will need intermediate sewing skills, the pattern is broken down into bite sized steps so that you can do a couple of steps at a time (I know what it is like sewing with a child under foot)
And so to celebrate the release of the new pattern and Celebrate the Boy, I will be giving away 3 of the Steggie Back Pack paper patterns, to enter leave a comment telling me which is your favourite dinosaur. You must leave a contact email address too either in the comment entry field or in the comment itself. I am happy to post worldwide.
A winner will be picked by random generator Monday 21st Feb. 9.00am JST.
Due to a dental appointment I will have to close this a bit later than planned so I will draw a winner at 12.00pm JST.
