Back to school 100% handmade: Backpacks, sweatshirts, leggings, masks …

Do you want to sew a 100% handmade back to school? Fill your little one’s wardrobe with clothes and accessories sewn by you. In this post, we are going to give you many ideas to make backpacks, sweatshirts and leggings, comfortable dresses, and much more. We will also give you some ideas for the new accessory that will accompany us throughout this school year, the mask. Your little ones will be protected but also comfortable and with cheerful and fun prints. Our cotton-based fabrics are natural, soft, and breathable. All of them with the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certificate that certifies that they are fabrics free of harmful substances.

Back to school 100% handmade

All the patterns that we show you below can be found in the new ORIGINS sewing pattern magazine that we presented to you very recently HERE.


You can never miss the backpack back to school. The first option is a basic backpack, with padded handles for greater comfort. The perfect size for kindergarten and school, sewn on a winter fleece from the Little Red Riding Hood collection and the Three little pigs collection. In addition, the patterns also include very original small cloth dolls to make by hand or by machine.

In the following backpack model, we wanted to give it a more fun touch by adding some animal shapes. We have the option of the beaver version or the deer version. Both give a different touch to the backpacks and are made with softshell.

Sweatshirts, leggings, and dresses

Within the new collection, you will find a wide variety of patterns and prints in jersey and winter sweat fabrics. Two elastic fabrics that are perfect for making comfortable garments for your little ones during their school days. The first pattern we teach you is this comfortable hoodie with a kangaroo pocket. Garden vegetables sweat in blue colors.
