Heather’s (Bag)

design

I’m really excited about the first product my daughter and I created together. She needed a way to carry her Pennyboard skateboard (named Heather) and we couldn’t find anything online that would work so we decided to make it ourselves. She designed it and picked out the fabrics; I made the pattern and started sewing them. Now we have our first batch of finished bags on Etsy. More colors will be coming as soon as exam week is over and she can help me make more!

Let us know what you think or what colors you would like to see to coordinate with your skateboard.

Skate Boarding, etc.

design

Skate boarding has taken over my neighborhood. All the local kids are out on their boards and I love watching them. It looks like so much fun but I’m one of those people who can barely balance on a flat floor so I won’t be trying it.

My daughter and her gang of skaters, named the “Royals”, have been skating around on their pastel and ice-cream colored penny-boards. She and I designed this backpack to hold her┬ásmall skate board while she travels this summer.

We liked the design and the soft, worn-in feel of the fabric so much that we decided to make more and put them up on Etsy. We should be listing some very soon…
