Ok let’s get back to the Backpacks…

Bumble Bee – Studio Aran – This super cute Bumble Bee Backpack is perfect for any bug loving child.  The bag is the perfect size for a 5-10 year old & fits about 3/4 ball of yarn inside (we all know this is the best way to gauge the size of a bag!)

The Bee base and body are made in one piece, whilst the wings, antenna, flap, drawstring & straps are all made separately & assembled at the end.


Ladybird – Studio Aran – This adorable Ladybird Backpack is a favourite with my little girl , and made slightly differently to the bee, the ladybird uses the tapestry technique on the colour changes.

The Lady bird base and body are made in one piece, whilst the spots, wing divider, antenna, flap, drawstring & straps are all made separately & assembled at the end.



You can purchase the pattern on its own as an inexpensive printable PDF or as a yarn kit.

I used Deramores own brand of yarn, Studio Aran yarn for my bug bags, it’s a very high quality, wonderfully soft 100% acrylic yarn that has been developed with anti-pilling technology.
