New Project: Boyfriend Bag
Project Label: ECC's Birthday Present
ECC, a teenage girl and family friend, has a birthday next week. We've asked lots of questions as to what she wants...candy...gift cards...clothes? Did she make it easy...NO! She wants a boyfriend...yes, a BOYFRIEND!
Present Day Status:
I thought about this one for a bit...how do you give a teenage girl a boyfriend, making them happy with your choices and not making her parents mad?
I have an answer...hopefully it will make everyone happy.
But there is still one piece missing...the all-important wrapping of the gift...and I've decided to make a bag. This bag must be (a) big enough to handle delivering the boyfriend and (b) be something that she'll want to use in the future (schoolbag, overnight bag)...which means it will need to have lots of PINK! Love that girl!
Amy Butler's Cosmo Bag seems to fit all the needs...a large pink/purple floral for the outside, a more-modest pink print for the interior, and a darker brown/pink print for the handles and trim.
Needless to say, I'm a bit intimidated...I've never created a bag before.
One week...keep your fingers and toes crossed for me!
