Here's what she decided on. She found some navy solid material and some material that I had bought to make Dani a dress when she was just little. (Dani will be 18 years old next month) Needless to say, I told Riley Kate she could probably choose that material. LOL
Here's the traditional side of the bag. I think this is my favorite side. I like the clean look.
Here's the 'ragged' side of the bag. Riley Kate loves the frayed look.
Here's a close up of the material w/ the cute little daisy flowers.
It would have made a cute dress, huh?! :)
In every bag, I made a removeable "faux" bottom. I use a piece of chipboard and make a 'pillowcase' to cover it. I do this to help the bag keep it's form and not collapse when you put anything in it. I also do it so that if you spill anything in the bottom of the bag, it's easy to pull the bottom out and wash it and replace the chipboard.
Now the bag is ready to go.... I attached the birthday tag to the strap. :)
I think she's going to love it!
