My sons girlfriend is graduating high school Thursday. She's a "total game nerd" as my son calls her affectionately. She has already been accepted to a nearby university where she will be studying graphic design. I wanted to make something special that she could use on her new journey. At the same time something that I thought represented her in the way we have come to know her over the last several months.
The game nerd is really good at video games and rivals the boys without much effort. She is also a girly girl, who's giving, kind and a very talented artist. I wanted to sew her a paint brush holder that she could throw in her bag for school. I used some fun fabric that I already had on hand and a cotton kitchen towel for the inside lining. I am really thrilled with how it turned out and made a matching moleskin covered journal to accompany it. This was really fun to make.
Congrats to the game nerd and best wishes for a bright and beautiful future!
