Here is the front of the backpack:
The back (the straps are really long right now, we're going to cut them shorter after we adjust it to fit him)
I really wasn't sure how this would turn out - I'm always nervous when trying something new, but I'm thrilled with the end result. The felted fabric is nice and thick, and is the perfect size for him to take a change of clothes, diapers, and a cup with him to MOPS. I know he's going to love it, and as tempting as it is to give it to him now, I'm saving this one back for Christmas. It's just killing me to wait though, lol!

SO.....I turn to my trusty resource, Knitting Pattern Central, and look what I found! This pattern for a felted backpack is too cute! While I love the backpack just the way it is written, I'm going to be cheap and use what I have here at home...some yellow and black, I'm thinking stripes!
I have one project that I've been procrastinating on that I will make myself finish before starting the backpack, just because the lure of the backpack will make me knit faster :)
Maybe, just maybe, I can finish it before Christmas and it can be wrapped under the tree.

You can't really see the differences in the pic, as I strategically overlapped the two, but they are definitely different! Oops! :) Not a huge difference, and they are probably usable, especially if DD has one foot about 1/2 inch longer than the other. LOL!
