Tractor Backpack for Kids Clothes Week Day 7

I made it to Day 7!  In case you missed it, for Kids Clothes Week, I sewed something everyday for each of my children, making seven things sewn in one week!  (That’s a lot of sewing, that’s why I’m just finishing up the blogging now!)  I made David a tractor backpack.  He requested tractor pants when he saw the fabric, but I really just couldn’t make him a garment I’d never let him wear outside of the house!  (Now that I’ve seen the pajama pants tutorial from Melly Sews, he just may get his tractor pants…there’s gobs of this fabric left!)

This project had to wait until the end because I was waiting for the blue tractor ribbon you can see as the carrying strap on the top.  I had ordered it from Pink Chalk Fabrics, and they are a little busy right now as they are clearing out all their fabric!  But that’s okay, I had a lot of other sewing to do.  So I cut out the pieces and it sat until the very last day.

I used this tutorial from Crazy Little Projects.  It’s a great tutorial, and I only made two little changes.  I used wide elastic for the straps rather than fiddle with making straps, and I added an exterior pocket on the side.

The pocket is the only place you can see the denim skirt I used to line the inside of the tractor backpack.  Because Allegra, our photographer, didn’t know I needed photos of the inside.

And David was being quite rambunctious, she had her hands full getting these!  But anyway, the inside of this little tractor backpack is fully lined with a former denim skirt.

And of course David had to ride on a tractor for a picture…

  1. You are amazing! I am surprised you have time to sew with 7 kids– let alone a project for each of them! Very cute backpack.

  2. I bet this little guy loves his backpack! What great tractor fabric & the denim looks perfect as a lining & pocket.

  3. I am so impressed with each of the 7 creations you put together! Wonderful to see most of the grandkids too! (I don’t blame the 14 year old for being camera shy) This IS my favorite blog to catch up with, since I don’t seem to get to visit often enough in person!
