One of my favorite Christmas gifts to give this year was my Mom's purse that I made. I knew that she would love it so much that it made me so excited to give it to her!
I completely just figured it out as I went--with no pattern and just an idea. I printed pictures on fabric of all her Grandkids (my four kids and my brothers 2 boys) and bought fabric that I thought she would like.
It started out looking like this...
Then slowly it transformed...
Until it turned into this..
I am so pleased with how it turned out. I always do photo purses for my Mom and she shows them off to everyone she meets. I know she enjoys showing off her Grandchildren. This is the first time I made her a fabric purse. I wish I would have remembered to take a picture when she was opening it..I teased my nephews they could thank me later for putting them on the back of the purse..they didn't have to have ruffles under their picture:). Believe me Mom will make sure everyone gets to see their picture.
I took this picture today after we went on our daily walk. A perfect Christmas present for Mom--I am so pleased! Now to try to top it next year!
