I was itching to sew something yesterday, so I made a little tote bag for my mother. We have a standing date on Monday mornings to attend Eucharistic Adoration. Every week when I pick her up, she is juggling several small prayer books, and I wish she had a tote bag for them. Now she does!
I included a zipper pocket in the lining for her rosary beads. Thank you, Kindred Quilters, for teaching me this infinitely useful technique!
Blue is her favorite color, so I think she will like it. I'll include a chocolate bunny and give it to her for Easter.
Even the simplest projects leave behind big messes!
