My dd has become Japan-obsessed. She loves all things Japanese...she is teaching herself Japanese, both speaking and reading and writing.. is perfecting her Origami shurikens.. is trying to convince me that Hakuna Matata, in Japanese, is a perfectly acceptable alternative to the original (When hell freezes over!!)..etc etc.
So when she desperately needed a new carry bag, anime inspired print was the obvious choice. :p
She is also cow obsessed, so the lining, while seeming bizarrely unrelated, was actually perfect. And seeing as we are in Hawaii, and she has a whacked sense of humor (no idea where she gets that from), the MooMoo was perfectly acceptable. :p
The whole shebang went over VERY well. :D
Pattern, my own; a magnetic snap closure, lined with very stiff interfacing, and self made piping bordering the edges.
