Two years ago when my daughter joined Girl Scouts as a Brownie, I made her this brown messenger bag to match her vest. It was the perfect size for her Brownie handbooks, which she took to her weekly meetings. I made a similar one for her BFF and they were both lined with fabric similar to the print on this pink heart, only with a brown background.
This year they are both Girl Scout "Juniors," which meant a new vest (in the most UN-matchable shade of bluish green) and also new books. I would have made them live with the brown bags, but their new books didn't fit.
It has been raining for 3 days (thank you, Hurricane Sandy) so I had to settle for these indoor photos in bad lighting... but you'll get the idea. I made two bags (one for my daughter, with the pink stitching around the heart) and one for her BFF (with the green stitching around the heart).
The bags are lined with a lighter green solid and they each have one inside pocket. They measure 14" x 14" and are 4" deep.
