Embellishing Kid’s Backpacks

 I found these great small backpacks at Hobby Lobby. They’re just the right size for the kids to take to daycare instead of a diaper bag…much smaller than a standard backpack. Small enough that even my 1.5 year old can handle it. They only come in 2 colors: pink, blue. With 2 daughters and one son we ended up with 2 identical pink backpacks. Therefore, we needed a way to easily keep them separated. Daddy is, after all, the one who is doing the daycare drop-off, and we know how easliy daddies can get confused. 😉

I got some iron-on appliques of flowers, butterflies, and dragonflies to put on each of the girl’s backpacks. There were so many cute options that it was almost impossible to choose.

Easy peasy! 😀
