Twill Tape Week: Baby's Got BackPack
Directly after "hem", my next idea for printed twill tape was "Use it to personalize a gift!" Twill tape ideas were hitting my poor over-taxed brain like rapid-fire, I tell you!
The easiest option, of course, would be to have someone's name printed on a length of tape and use it to tie up their gift packaging. But you all know I prefer to sew, so...
Backpack! I've been wanting to make Made By Rae's backpack pattern for awhile anyway, and I thought it would be the perfect thing to personalize for a pretty terrific little girl who is turning 3 soon.
I had Twill Tape Guy print me out a length of vertically printed tape with letters and another with numbers for the straps. I also got a yard with Kate's name printed 3 times, but spaced far enough apart that I had plenty of empty space on either side of her name to span the width of the backpack (last name blurred for privacy).
And there you go! An adorable little personalized gift. I think the extra twill tape details make all the difference.
Now, who has an idea for what I should do with the two remaining lengths of tape printed with her name?
