So my next door neighbour turned 7 years old last month. Calie is a pretty smart little kid with a growing sense of humour as she ages. I made this bag for her as birthday present.
The bright flowery fabric is your standard run of the mill 100% craft cotton. LOVE the brightness of this. It is on the front flap, the lining inside and as a trim for the back pocket. The black is a medium weight cotton twill. I chose black for the dirt factor that children inevitably get into somehow. There is a large pocket inside with a button to keep everything in its place. As this was for a 7 yr old, I chose not to add a change pocket and did not see a need for a cell phone pocket. The strap is adjustable and has rivets attaching it to the bag for extra strength.
