After making this bag, my daughter said she wanted a new one for school.
So she picked her fabrics for the outside (including patches from an old pair of her jeans).
And, she picked fabrics for the interior.
And, she picked fabrics for the outside.
I don't always agree with or like her fabric choices.
I do, however, love her a lot.
So she got all that she wanted without me inserting any of my own opinions.
She uses it as an overnight bag ... not a school bag, like I thought she would.
And still, my mouth is shut (mostly).
