My grandmother’s birthday just passed this week, so I thought it would be nice to make her a little something. She’s pretty incredible in many ways. She has raised up an awesome family of 6 children, 12 grandchildren, and 2 great grandchildren. She’s probably changed more diapers in her lifetime than anyone could count, and she puts her family above everything.
She has traveled the world, yet is very modest and humble. She deserves to have anything she would ever desire, yet follows a budget and is very practical being careful not to consume beyond her needs. That is the best way to sum up my thoughts of Grandmom in a few short sentences.
I made her a little fall tote for her grocery trips that I think she will enjoy.
I’m really not sure if she reads my blog, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she had it bookmarked… she’s more tech savvy than your average grandmom! (If you see this before Wednesday Gram, sorry for ruining the surprise!)
I took it apart after I finished it the first time and made some adjustments. I really liked how the colors in the flowers complimented the stripes, so I decided to fold them over to show them off a little bit. I also threw in a magnetic snap. Now that it’s “done”, I really wish I had added a pocket as well. I guess you’re never fully satisfied with your own work!
