Lily's Peppermint Butler Bag.


Peppermint Butler on Lily's hip - off to church.
Yesterday Lily made a Peppermint Butler bag. (If you are not sure who he is find out here.) As the mother of teenagers I need to know all about important subjects like "Adventure Time" so I can hold intelligible conversations with my children. It's important you know! Anyway, this is Lily's Peppermint Butler Bag. He is fully lined, made of felt and comes complete with zipped top. He is the first piece of her school holiday project. Next comes her Princess Bubblegum outfit. (Honestly. That's her name! Find out who she is here.) I'm pretty sure Lily has homework to do too these holidays, but she will be leaving that to the last minute I think. I think she's awfully clever because she designed and made him herself. When her Dad asked her how she knew what to do she said that she had seen both Jess and I make lots of things which helped and it also helped her realise that you just make it up as you go along. Yep. My philosophy of life as imparted to my children: Make it up as you go along!

His tails.
