Sometimes, everything seems to go haywire and there is a need to get out of the house IMMEDIATELY. I know that I'm not alone, we've had friends drop by without even shoes on. This backpack was made with these moments in mind. It's small and I packed it with the diapers and wipes I need for both kids. There are no toys, no additional distractions, just the essentials. It's the get-out-of-Dodge backpack. I'm keeping it hung on a hook on our front porch.
It's from Lotta's Simple Sewing, I just haven't put her book back down since I picked it up for the sun hat! I also made a smaller one for a little friend of mine for her trips to the park with her new baby sister. Just took six inches off the pattern and a few off the straps.
