Halloween Drawstring Backpacks





After my aunt requested that I make her a drawstring backpack in Route 66 Fabric for all her car show trinkets, I decided that it would be a cute idea to have a backpack for Trick-or-Treating Toddlers on Halloween.  My kids will hold onto a regular bag for only so long before it gets handed off to me.  This is exactly what my kids will be sporting this Halloween...  

They can hold onto it like a traditional trick-or-treat bag to grab all their loot, but swing it over their shoulders for when they are walking.  

I also decided to make my daughter a drawstring backpack with a matching toddler pillow in Disney Princess satin fabric that she picked out herself.  My husband ran a honey-do errand to the fabric store and took Charlotte with him.  She never returns home empty handed from an outing with daddy.  He asked her if she wanted Princess or Little Mermaid fabric, and she wanted the princesses.  She LOVES her silky bag and pillow...  
Next project, a backpack and pillow for her brother who was very jealous this morning.

Thanks for dropping by my blog! I love to feature cute Etsy product... in my mind, it's semi-homemade, because it IS homemade... by someone else. ;)
I think your Traveling Art Totes are so cute & fun! I'm going to keep them in mind when I'm ordering gifts in the future... let me know if you ever have anything new in your Etsy store that you'd like me to check out!
