PBKids Backpack Knock-off

I put together this backpack for my preschooler last year. As odd as this sounds, my two boys enjoy pouring over the Pottery Barn Kids catalog when it comes (I guess you can never start them too early, right?). This backpack is very similar to one of the $45 ones that PBKids carries....only this cost less than $10!!

Found these iron-on letters at HobLob for $3.99 and used my 40% coupon.

Also found these footballs, which apparently can now be bought online?!?! Didn't know HobLob had online shopping until today. VERY cool!!

I purchased the backpack from a local grocery store with great sales. I got it for $5 and used my seam ripper to remove the label that was where the football is. I then just followed the directions on the iron-on letters and football packages and attached them to the backpack. 
Easy Peasy.

This cheap little backpack held up great all year...although it only was used three days a week. However, it was always STUFFED with a blankie, lunch box and lots of sweet projects. The letters & football still look great. And I always had people asking where I bought it and even a few asking if it was the PBKids backpack!

Happy Back-to-Schooling!!
