Don't be deceived - this is no ordinary backpack. Measuring just 3½" x 3" x 2", it's a cute, little coin purse. Wouldn't these make great presents.

Softies come in all shapes and sizes, the main criteria being that they are soft and cuddly - a toy that a child can snuggle up to. Adorable and cute, like today's showcased project, just adds to their appeal.
