I found this sitting in my computer archives and had to laugh. I thought these pictures would never see the light of day, but now they are just too good not to share.

Back when I was applying to SCAD, I entered their Challenge Scholarship Competition. I found out about the competition pretty late in the game and the photography challenge had already ended. Darn. The only challenge left (besides some sort of dress-sewing competition) was their accessories challenge. The accessories challenge was to design an innovative handbag that was functional in real life. I sure didn’t have enough time design and so sew a fancy dress (I only had 1 week until the deadline), so I chose to enter the handbag/accessories challenge. Being a nana at heart, of course I had to do something painfully nana-ish: Grandma’s Brag Bag.

For the grandmother who can’t talk enough about her grandkids, who needs to be toting around a wallet full of school pictures? This bag is sure to stir up conversation wherever she goes. The clear pockets make it easy for grandma to update photos as her grandkids grow. It also comes complete with detachable bag that can be used as a carry-all for when she babysits the kids for the day.

Some of the pictures are my own baby pictures (can you guess which ones they are?) and some of them are random pictures I found off the Internet haha (hello Google Images). If you see your picture here, do know it was used for an educational cause!

Unfortunately I didn’t win. But I still had fun making it. I’m waiting for the perfect grandma to give it to. My grandma (thankfully) isn’t like this haha!
