new school bag for Paige

Paige wanted a new school bag for her birthday so we designed this together. She chose all of the fabrics - I think she did an awesome job!

It measures 17" wide x 7" deep x 10" tall. It can open up to 24" wide if you loosen the ties. The grommets were easy to install. This was a great solution to being able to make it bigger when she needs to.

I found the cool buckle below on etsy.com in the sewinggoodies shop!

We love the interior fabric ~ it's a linen I bought at The Franklin Mill Store - one of my favorite things about the store are the cool fabrics Mary picks out when she goes to market.

There are all kinds of cool animals in the print as well as these funky skulls.

Happy Birthday Paige - you are an awesome kid!!!!
