it's been lost.
i definitely think i was more heartbroken than leo. more about the contents than the actual backpack (old matchbox cars from his uncle!!!).
but we had to move onwards and upwards. no sense in giving it all too much value... i didn't want leo to be upset about it, so i needed to move on, as well. so plans were made. here's a little preview... a new backpack...
with a surprise inside!
i started with some old t-shirts. got some zippers, freezer paper, and an old curtain. (that curtain has been sneaking its way into a lot of projects these days... there's just so much of it!). and i got to work. i knew we'd be flying soon, and i was wanting to make a car mat for leo to play with, and now, with the missing backpack, thought i could somehow combine the two.
and... here it is... a backpack that opens up into a car mat!
it's already been to a couple restaurants, the shoe store, and will be perfect for the airplane!
now that it's made, i kind of feel like it was time for a new one anyway.
