My cousin asked for a GRE study book for Christmas.  Inspired by the Green Grocery Bag challenge, I decided to sew her a book tote bag for the wrapping that could be used for a shopping bag once she is done using it for a book bag.  I gave her a GRE study book and some snacks as part of the present.  I used safety pins to help it fit to the book while wrapped and tucked the handles inside.  Then I wrapped  it with ribbon.  It really didn't look like a bag, but a present.

Thanks for the inspiration!  It was really fun!

May you live each day of your life. -Jonathan Swift

I love FFA2 fabric! I hope she does well on her GREs. I just took mine this past fall and man was it interesting. I listened to GRE vocab builders 8 hours a day at work for two months straight... it was terrible but it paid off.

If we love it we should vote for it!  Only a couple days left.

Great Job beanblossom.

What a thoughtful gift for your cousin!
