I spent more than a few naptimes working on Mother's Day gifts for my Mother-in-law and my Grandma-in-law. I love how these bags came out. The tote I made for Jackie is reversible with 4 pockets. For Grandma I made an eye glass case and a change/make-up purse. Somehow I got the impression that Grandma wanted the bag more than her gift, but I still think she liked it!
I love the fabric I picked out for the bag. It's cotton, but it has a very silky feel to it. Even though I'm not one to normally like floral, I can't decide if I like the floral or the striped side the best! The faux leather straps gave me a ton of trouble. I did not like working with that material. I think they turned out okay, but next time, I think I'd use something different.
