Cosmo Bag

The daughter starts her fourth year at Purdue this month.

Have I told you before she'll be graduating in December with a B.S in Nursing?  Yeah, you've probably heard me say that before...I'm proud of her.

Thinking she might need a new book bag...and after conquering the Boyfriend Bag with success, I decided to make one for her.

Her favorite color...brown.


Yes, I said brown....and she doesn't like frosting on cupcakes. Try and understand that one if you can...

Anyway, back to the topic at hand...her school bag.  The brown-muted teal stripe will be the outside fabric, the raffia-toned letter print is the inside, and the chocolate solid is for the handles and accents. It's decorator-weight fabric, so it should be able to withstand anything that's thrown into it...but I'll definitely reinforce the bottom with plastic just to make sure.

My deadline for shipping is Monday...complete with a bag of oreos and a jar of peanut butter for dipping, several bags of turkey jerky for energy, and perhaps some candy.

Just remember, there are many ways for a child to rebel. If brown and naked cupcakes is the worst you get....

I really like the lining fabric.
