This is a gift for our DGD's 11th birthday. I found the pattern on It's Sew Easy-- http://www.itsseweasytv.com/projects/series_1200/1202/Itsseweasy_1202-2.htm
I was able to use scraps from a quilt that I made for Audrey--so everything thing came from my stash!! The inside zipper pulls are just the teeth from the unused length of one of the zippers and the turtle on the outside zipper came from an old bracelet. I'll get some polish and extras to fill her bag with goodies.

That's lovely, Karen...eleven-year-olds want to grow up and this is definitely a grown-up case - she will love it.

However, I'm sure, like me, you wish our DGDs would stay small a bit longer! I love watching them mature and become special people, but I miss those baby times.

Love the fabric so bright and trendy for tweens.... Michaels might have some fancy emery boards the sponge type - I bought some there very inexpensive compared to WM....

What a cute, cute bag, Karen! Audrey will love it...and the "grown-up goodies" inside will make it even better. Sometimes WM and similar stores have sample-sized sundries (like hand lotion, chap stick, lip gloss). You are a #1 Grandma!!

Perfect gift for the birthday girl AND an opportunity to use up leftovers. I saw this project demonstrated on their show but yours is so much nicer. I wonder if this is big enough to hold a gift card, this could be a good way to present the cards at Christmastime next year.
