12 year old gift?

I'm making an effort that every gift we give this year(well, minus Christmas probably) will be hand made.

My niece is turning 12 next week and I want to make her something. Not sure what? Maybe an ipod pocket? A purse? A tote? Any suggestions

How about a cover for her iPod with a matching purse and wallet. By matching I don't mean exact same fabric. Something that coordinates well together.

Re: 12 year old gift?

Does she live near you? Would she be intersted in some sewing lessons to make her own tote or skirt? You could make a very easy (or hard if you want to put in the time) blanket. I would be leary of making a purse unless you know her and her style well. I got burned making a purse for a teen, she thought it was pretty, but it wasn't her style so she never used it.

Oh yeah, we see them weekly. I know her, so I'm sure I could get something she'd like as far as colors/fabric.

Great idea on the "matching" I think I'll do just that
