Next week my Sister, brother in law and my two young nephews are coming to stay. We have an action packed week planned including trips to Dartmoor, the local pool and parks and treasure hunts in the woods.
So to welcome the two boys to our new house in the country I have made them each a Peter Rabbit drawstring back pack that I have filled with a new lunch box, healthy treats, paper gliders, plasticine, blow bubbles and more. I have made one with blue drawcord and one with green so they can distinguish between the two!
They will also be able to take their new drawstring backpacks with them when we go out for the day. A great place for their snacks, and toys to keep them amused on the car journeys!
I got the lovely Peter Rabbit cotton canvas from Wholeport and the drawcord and eyelets from my local sewing store. The drawstring back packs are super easy to make and you can have one whipped up in an hour or so.
This finished backpack measures 35cm across and is 36.5cm tall, a perfect size for the little ones...
