Do your kids love picking up all kinds of beach things from the ocean such as shells, starfish, maybe even a shark’s tooth? Then the Little Collector Backpack pattern from Swoodson Says would be perfect for that! This backpack features all easy to manipulate features, such as a drawstring/Velcro closure, and an envelope-style pocket. The pocket and bottom of the bag can be made with mesh to allow dirt and sand to leek out when your child collects their treasures. How clever!

No, this pattern has amazing options you have got to see!
