Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

Tonight we held an event to celebrate the upcoming January release of the third sisterhood book. We took the sacred vow of the sisterhood, found our sisterhood soulmates through an online quiz, ate sisterhood snacks, and wrote about our best friends on a pair of jeans for the teen corner. Then, we spent a long time making recycled denim purses! First we sewed the bottoms together. Then, we decorated the front with denim cut-outs, patches, and buttons. Finally, we braided strips of denim and safety-pinned them on for the handle. Giselle and Lisa each won a book of friendship quizzes and a pair of socks that looked like jeans. Everyone took home a handout of websites and a few friendship quizzes from Discovery Girls magazine, as well as their fabulous purses!

If you missed this event, don't worry! You can still participate in the sisterhood by reading the books by Ann Brashares:
