I made this last week from a scarf I got from a little boutique and had to make something with. My favorite part though is the inside. I didn't have anything on hand and I'm probably not going to use my graduation gown for anything so I cut it up. She thought that was really cool. I think overall it's girly enough for a 16 year old and it also fulfilled my desire to make the bag.
Plus she gets to decide if she wants anyone to know about the inside fabric.
