This is an idea that I have had for a while running in the back of my mind. Finally I drew it out and made one. I love it!! The side zipper is wonderful for get things in and out of my backpack quickly. There is also a back zipper pocket and two interior slip pockets. I hope to write the pattern soon and have two sizes, large and small. My daughter immediately wanted one when she saw this bag but I think she would need it to be smaller since she is only 5. I am also going to add a cute zipper pull tutorial to go along with this backpack!! So start to watch the shop for this new pattern available soon!
