Tractors for TJ

Junior had a birthday party for one of his friends this weekend.  He picked out a box of monster trucks for him.  When we got home, I realized that I didn’t have a bag big enough to wrap the present.  So what did I do?  Yup, I whipped up a backpack to put the present in.


I had some John Deere fabric in my stash.  I was actually kind of surprised considering the majority of my sewing lately has been for Girly- girl or purses =)

The backpack ended up a bit bigger than I was expecting.  But, that’s all right.  Mr. TJ said it was his as soon as he saw it =)


The backpack has two inside pockets.  The larger of the two is divided into three sections and then the smaller of the two is sewn part way into the middle.  The flap closes with two magnetic clasps.  The straps are padded and there is a handle on the top of the bag.


  1. Im thinking I might need one or my little girl for christmas you charge? Nicole

  2. TJ loves it! He already has it packed with socks and shorts "just in case Grandpa can come get me"... So thoughtful (and fabulously talented) of you Lynette! Thank you! -Brittany
