Tinkerbell Bag

When Lily grows out of clothes, I usually pass them on to a friend.

Some of her clothes with cute designs I hang onto and give them to my mom to 'make something' out of them.  Most of the time my mom makes bags. Lily loves bags.  (You can see some other bags she has made in the past here.)
This bag was perfect for our trip.  I placed items that Lily would like to do on the plane.  (a few coloring books, colored pencils & crayons)  I placed it next to her on the plane for easy reach. 
To make this bag, my mom used one of Lily's old hooded sweatshirts.
My mom removed the zipper from the front and put the 2 sides together.  She also removed the sleeves and sewed them up.
She left the pockets and then added a snap.  She also added lots of pompom fringe.  She even added some pompom fringe to Tink's shoes.
She used a couple different ribbons to make the shoulder strap (putting a fusable web in between them to make them stiffer).  And then she added this cute bow the end of each side.
