What young Dr Who fan wouldn’t want their own Dr Who backpack? Certainly not this one!
When I saw this Dr Who fabric it was crying out to be made into a backpack, and it came together quite quickly. It is a pattern that I have used before, when I made the blue monkey backpack, using the preschool backpack pattern by Pattern Play.
The main outer of the backpack is a TARDIS print, with a Dalek print for the bag and pocket flaps. The lower pocket, lining and straps are all a plain black cotton.
It’s a good pattern for using novelty prints, as you don’t need huge amounts of them to make a reasonable sized bag. As a children’s bag it’s not huge, it’ll just about fit an A4 sized book in the interior and has four small car/crayon slots under the outside pocket flap and two slip pockets behind the outer pocket. I started with a half metre of the TARDIS print and a fat quarter of the Daleks, and have a small amount of each left over.
The straps are adjusted with two D-rings on either side, and both the main bag and front pocket are fastened using velcro.
I particularly like the piping around the bag flap which I did in black.
I really like this bag. It’s certainly very cool!!
