My Mom is Coming!

So, my mom is flying in as I write this and since she's on a plane and won't be checking my blog before she gets here, I suppose it's safe to share what I made for her! It's called a "Bagsket" and I got the tutorial off of someone's blog, which I suppose I'll share a link to, although I would NOT recommend Timtex for the interfacing and she also uses some strange measurements, so a little tweaking is necessary. BUT, I am happy with it and it was a good way to use up those crappy JoAnn quilting fabrics that were already cut into a bazillion strips. (I'm not bitter. Yes I am.) It has several pockets around the inside, in which I put lots of little goodies for her. Yes, those are kitchen gloves, my mom refuses to do dishes without kitchen gloves. But, there are several less-slave-like things in there too, I promise! Notice the Lindor truffles??? Mmmm.

  1. So I'm all caught up now on your blog and all I can say is WOW!!! You are such an amazing mom and so crafty! I love all the things you make and all the time you take to make extra little things for your kids like the blankie and the dress. I only wish I could sew like that! I'm learning though! You have such a wonderful family and I'm so glad that we were able to meet and that we are able to still keep in touch if by only e-mail!
