Total Package

Total Package
Originally uploaded by The Anchovy.
I made this package as a birthday gift for our 5 year old neighbor. It is a tote bag with her initials, a pencil roll, and a small zipper pouch holding a sharpener and an eraser. Inside the tote is a nice pad of drawing paper.

The floral fabric is a nice heavy thrifted sheet. The red is a thick chunky woven fabric of some kind ( I need to learn fabric names.)

Lately I've been giving tutus and fairy wands and crowns as birthday gifts but I thought this girl in particular might have enough of that type of thing. So I made her a little art bag instead. I got the idea for Amanda Blake Soule's book, The Creative Family.

You can see the inside of the pencil roll here.

Actually, Montbrillant is the original base for Breitling Watch making. Continuing the excellent tradition of Navitimer series, Navitimer Watches is also characterized by the integral slide rule. Innovatively, a date window has been found between 4 o'clock and 5 o'clock. Montbrillant Datora feature can not be frequently seen on other watches of the same series. The obvious feature of Breitling Avenger refers to the four-chronograph dial. Each one has the unique function for exact time display.
