rejected for Annika's cardigan. I thought it might work for a bag, rather than a garment. In Ravelry, I typed 'Crochet child's back pack' into the search box and amazingly came up with three pages of thumbnail tiles. Many of them were made to look like animals, which wasn't really what I had in mind. But this Floral Fiesta pattern from My Little City Girl is perfect. The original yarn was a bamboo/cotton mix, which reminded me that I had bamboo left overs just right for the flowers. I knitted an i-chord for the straps rather than the original crochet chain. It took longer, but I thought the crochet strap was too thin to be comfortable.
