Sewing for Mom

Now that Mother's Day is over I can show you what I made for my Wonderful Mom! I made this purse with some cute retro looking cowboy fabric. I paired it with some red checked fabric and red polka dot fabric. I also put some polka dot ribbon around it.

When I finished it, I decided it looked too much like a diaper bag.

See how cute that cowboy fabric is? I love it!

I also thought it was too large for my Mom. She doesn't need to carry around a heavy purse. So I made Mom something else.

A couple of days after I made this I started thinking about this rhinestone pin I had and wondered how it would look on this bag and if it would make it look less like a diaper bag. It almost looks like a Sheriff's badge. So what do you think? Too childish for an adult to use as a purse/tote?

Here are pictures of what I made Mom.

I didn't take pictures of the back. It has one large pocket that is divided into two sections. I may have to make one for myself, because I love this fabric combination!

Mom called today and said she used it today and just loved how light it was! Almost forgot she had it on her shoulder!

Be back soon!

I love both bags. The cowboy print is wonderful. Not too childish.
