A while back I received a request for a 'hip' messenger bag from my 8 yr old neighbor. She's way ahead of her age in her fashion and design sense. It was her birthday in September and I decided I'd try to pull it off for a birthday present. Fast-forward a couple months and here we are.
She picked out the fabrics herself, and wrote a cute little wish list for the bag including diagrams (in elevation!). I love this seed packet fabric, and I had just enough. It has a shimmer to it that I just can't capture on my silly phone camera in a dark house at night ;)
She requested her name on it (easy with my new love of laser cutting fabric).
A place to attach her lunch bag.
Inside pockets for a laptop and other goodies.
Front pencil pockets - which again, my phone camera can't show too well.
This was a fun bag to put together, and I think she officially has the coolest bag in school.
Now I think it's time to resume my search for the missing camera.....
