Mom's Day Gift for My Mom.

Here is the bag I made for my mom.

 I didn't make 2 bags! This is reversible. It's made using precut 5" squares that come in a set called a Charm Pack. It's a stack of about 40 squares with each print in a fabric line. It's like buying the whole pad of Basic Grey paper instead of just a few sheets, for my papercrafting friends. These 2 fabric lines are both by Moda. At the top, in blue and yellow, is Summer Breeze. I am in love. I want to marry this line of fabric, but I think Phil might object. I will, however, be wearing a dress made out of this line for his mom's wedding in June! The second line is called Sunkissed. I love the bright cheerful colors. Every time I see something made of this I think, "That is so sweet!" 
The pattern I used was a free download called "Sweet Sixteen." I downloaded it (a free download) and there is no url on the pdf. I feel like I'm talking in secret code. I just searched but can't get a page to open. If I find a link I'll post it! OH, LOOK! I found it!

I used my i-top to cover buttons for both Mom's & MIL's bags. Here they are minus the bag!

Tonight I finished a bag I started  for Natalie a while back. Will take pics of that another day. We have more projects we are working on! 

Have a wonderful day. And hug your kids. Even if they are smart mouths who walk in while you're typing and say, "Wow, your mother's day gift was for your mom. I would have thought it would've been for your uncle or something." LOL!
