I designed The Rocket Bag for my toddler when he had his first sleep-over at Nana’s house. I now use it as a nappy bag and he loves to remind me to “Get the Rocket Bag!” whenever we leave the house.
It has a zipper closure the length of the rocket body, allowing easy access to all items inside. There are straps so it can be worn as a back-pack, and also a handle so it can be hung on a hook. The bag is fully lined, and no over-locker is required for construction.
Advanced beginner. The main technical sewing is the insertion of the zipper. The instructions and photos are very detailed.
Estimated time to complete:
One size only (two strap lengths- one for toddlers and one for young children).
Other materials required:
Matching sew-all (polyester) thread 1 x 30cm (12 inch) zipper Iron-on interfacing 20mm or 25mm wide band, such as a nylon or polyproplyene webbing (or alternative strap) Sewing machine, ideally with a zipper foot Overlocker not necessary Iron-on transfers or crocheted circles can be used for windows
1cm (3/8 inch), included in pattern.
