He had been using some sort of mesh grocery bag before this that was getting sliced to bits by the skate blades. I was going to make it triangular like mine that you see poking out inside, but that doesn't leave room for gloves if you're playing shinny.
I also added an inside pocket to hold a skate towel. It;s made out of denim and some super thick cotton blend I'd originally bought to make kid pants.
For Rachel's present we followed Jess's example and went with kid-helped jewelry. Sophie's attention span didn't last long, hence why the purple one wasn't finished as we were walking out the door. Mom got a picture of Rachel wearing all 7 pieces of birthday jewelry on top of her own. It was beautiful. ;)
