Davy's Dinosaur Backpack

Davy starts Kindergarten this week. We could not find a backpack he liked. Finally, it occurred to me that I could make what he wanted! We found a plain navy blue backpack and I asked him what he would like on it. He was between dinosaurs and Pokemon, but since I couldn't find any Pokemon machine embroidery designs, we went with dinosaurs. I had a coupon for Embroidery Library and I'm always happy with their designs, so we looked there and found this Allosaurus.
I took the label off the backpack and stitched the dinosaur right on the front. It stitched beautifully with no thread breaks or tangles throughout the 22000 stitches!! I love the way it turned out and Davy is ready to go to Kindergarten in style.

I'm hoping to share more back-to-school creations with you this week. Thank you everyone who has left comments; I'm glad to know someone is reading!!

My son would love this dino bag! I don't have an embroidery machine, but I do have a scrap of dino fabric that could be appliqued onto a bag. Thanks for the inspirations!
