Thanks for posting this review! I just love looking through the Oliver and S book. I was thinking about making this backpack for a fundraiser that my Mother-in-Law does every year and now I probably will! The backpack looks sooo cute and it's great to know that the pattern is user-friendly.

Such a cute backpack and cute son!!! I love the lining too. You will have to share your source for the 1.5" strap adjusters.
