5 years old! (and Simplicity 1952)
My baby is 5 today (sniff, sniff), and is delighted to have some new things to play with. The bag is from Simplicity 1952 and is made (mainly) with remnants from Lakehouse Fabrics' "Little Lady" collection. the straps are a heavy elastic so no need to make them adjustable. The bib (which Benjamin put on his giraffe) was part of the pattern, too.
I will have to take some pics of the baby doll clothes I also made from the pattern - once my camera recharges, but here is how the backpack works with a doll. My doll loves it!
