The Ultimate Summer Bag

I can not wait to get my summer travels started but first I needed the perfect bag.  I found this backpack from Target and knew with a mermaid's touch it would be the ultimate summer bag.  With a few iron-on patches and pompoms from Michaels this bag was totally transformed.   

I was inspired by the huge amount of fun and funky personalized bags at FW all over the world, this spring.  Obviously these bags are ones only I could possess in my dreams, so I made my own!

Move over Martha Stewart! I am seriously so excited to take this bag with me to New York and to LA! I can't wait to show you all the places this little bag will go this summer so stay tuned.  

My Mom and I put together these adorable tassels with some embroidery thread, beads and some pompoms!
