For her birthday, my lil' sis made her this awesome spy kit. The backpack pattern was from this Lotta book. I love the fabric and the stencilled bird. Awesome. She rarely goes anywhere without it.
Inside was: flashlight, notebook, pens, spy mix cd (the Moby James Bond theme + lots of other fun songs including plenty of Beatles, which apparently Princess requested), magnifying glass, pocket mirror, and Harriet the Spy movie. She's added to it a few things, like a pretend camera and a signal whistle. And I think lip gloss.
And to top it all off, I finally printed off some of these code things for her and her friends. From Martha Stewart Kids magazine a while back (printable here). I helped her make her first message as it was a little long, explaining who had the codes, etc. And then we delivered them to her friends and are awaiting replies.
Meanwhile, Princess and I are writing coded notes to each other - fun summer stuff!
