Last week I decided to make a bag for my mother-in-law for Mothers Day. Every Tuesday a small group of women, including myself meet for craft morning and a chat. Sometimes we bring along magazines that we have doubled up on or no longer need for someone else to use. While scanning through one that was placed on the table I saw a pattern for a shopping bag, it was in an old Patchwork and Stitching (Vol 11 No1) magazine and thought it would make a great gift. I find I have trouble finding gifts for the oldies in the family, maybe I should include myself in that comment. Haa Haa after all, I have turned 6o years and my grandsons think I'm old. Back to the bag, I set aside the weekend to make it and as usual did'nt have everything I needed, I had to go shopping to find the rings to attach the handles to the bag and our local store didn't have any in stock. Needless to say a trip out of town to Spotlight was needed to buy them, and while there I spent some time browsing, so, I did'nt get the bag finished untill today, it will be in tomorrows post, I just hope it arrives by Friday because it has to go interstate. I'm happy with the way it has turned out, I just hope she will be wearing her red coat again this winter.
