X-posted to sew_hip and craftgrrl on LiveJournal

My 10yo cousin is making the big leap to middle school. I asked her if she was excited and she said she was scared and didn't want to do it. So, to make the transition a bit smoother, I put together a little care package of things that I thought my aunt and uncle weren't likely to buy for her (because they're not completely necessary), but that made my middle school career easier and more fun.

Drawstring backpack for PE clothes:

Back

Detail




Matching pencil case

Inside


Everything else (stuff I bought):
A holographic write and wipe board, a mirror, a wire basket, a mini stapler, monogramed post-its, and travel-size hand sanitizer


Can you think of anything else that I need to add? Feedback welcome!

What a cute bag and a very thoughtful gift.  A couple of things my 14 yo dd suggested you add were:  a pocket pack of tissues and a lip balm.  What a nice cousin you are!

if you do get her pads, a conceiling bag for them would be good.
everything looks great though.

She is a very lucky girl.  Knowing she has you caring about her will make her feel a lot better.  Not to mention she is going to have some really cool new stuff!!!  I am a teacher, and I can't tell you how popular those bags are.  Great Job!
