I saw this in Mothering issue #153. In the article about crafty mamas, there was a picture. I don't have this issue (checked it out from the library) but if anyone knows who the mama was in the picture, please let me know. I would love to email her and ask about the directions for making this cute bag.

The article attributes the backpack to Eren San Pedro. They list a url http://vintagechica.typepad.com for her

I haven't check out her blog yet, but she might list instructions there.

Thanks for the link. I looked all over the blog but couldn't find anything about the backpack. If anyone does please post. I have several aprons of my late grandmothers and think this would make a neat gift for my cousins.
Thanks

It took me awhile but I found the apron backpack:

There are nice pics but no instructions unfortunately. I am the type of person who needs detailed instructions

I'm so glad you found it!! Thanks I really love it. But like you I wish there were more detailed instructions. I wonder if the Lotta book she mentions in the blog has a pattern. It's on my list of things to do now!!
