The one adjustment I made was to add a drawstring at the top as I thought it would hold things in better than just a flap with vecro:DSCF1349 I used iron-on letters on white felt to add a name onto the top of the front pocket:DSCF1350 The straps on the back are adjustable using the metal rings:DSCF1351 After a bit of persuasion I managed to convince my little monkey to model his new monkey backpack for the camera:DSCF1345 DSCF1346He seems to like it! 🙂
