Preteen Girl About Town

This afternoon my niece is graduating from elementary school. How she got this old is beyond me. I was a freshman in college when she was born, how can she be a "preteen" now?

At this age freedom during the summer = your bike. I think it's always difficult to find just the right bag that can go with on your bike - not too big, doesn't get caught on your wheels, not too hot, etc. So I made her this little pouch that fits on her belt. It's just big enough to hold her house keys, a couple dollars for ice cream and maybe some lip balm or small sunscreen. I thought the fun print would go well with her summer wardrobe (which I am most certain contains absolutely zero pink.) Hopefully it helps her have a great summer, full of preteen fun and keeps her out of trouble. Boy if it did all that I think I would have quite the marketable product on my hands!!

P.S. Can I just tell you how good it felt to actually make something! :)
