For my Mom's birthday earlier this week, I wanted to make something that she would enjoy, but also something that she could use. Mom is a Sunday school teacher and loves to read her Bible, so I made a little handbag/carry-all for her Bible, maybe a study guide and plenty of pens and highlighters.
I used a pattern from an old quilting magazine that I found at a garage sale for 10 cents this summer. I used some pretty blue fabric and lace trim that were in my stash. There are pockets on both the front and back.
Ever done this before? Nope
Do I love it? Yes I do!! And Mom does too.
Material Cost: 10 cents for the magaizine that had the pattern. Everything else on hand.
Time Spent: maybe an hour
Success - Yes or No? YES!
