It is Prom season. All my youngsters are past prom stage, but I have a Saturday girl!
Now, this girl will go far. She is quite shy and retiring, but she worked herself up a job! How is that for a lass!
She has known us for some years, and came and joined us for 'work experience' We loved having her, and she seemed to enjoy herself. Then this year, it was prom! She bought a dress.... but it needed some very minor alteration. So, Mum brought her round, and we got the alteration done. To pay for this, she volunteered to do a few Saturdays.. Totally unnecessary, but she felt better about it... And her Mum liked that it meant she had to get up!
We found her so useful, she started officially in April......real pay too!
So, the bag?? No suitable bag found... In the end, I volunteered, sent them some photos of another bag I had made, and they liked.... so, the bag was made!
some piping and pleating on the front, pockets inside, and a long strap, on swivel clips, , a zip top, and the flap fastened with a magnetic clasp, and you have a bag fit for prom!
A very happy lass brought me a card and some chocolates today!
And Mum couldn't quite believe all the detail involved...
I thought it not so bad either!
oh! did you want to see the inside too?
