Gifts for the Grandmama’s

Happy Mothers Day to all of you mom’s out there! I hope that your day has been great :) We have had a relaxed day and it’s been wonderful! My hubby has taken on the “mom” work for the day ;)

I want to say a special thanks to my mom for being the amazing woman she is. She doesn’t hear it enough for sure! She’s so great to me and my family. She just gives of herself all of the time. She’s also my best friend. We talk every day just about, even if it’s just a few minutes. It helps keep me sane! LOL

“Her children rise up and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praises her.”
Proverbs 31:28

So for this Mother’s Day I decided to make her and my mother in law a purse. I was in the mood for something bright that they could rock during the summer months.

Log Cabin Block Purse

The middle is a log cabin block which I made using a random tutorial online. Then I used a bag I had to come up with the dimensions for the other parts.

I think one of my favorite parts of the purse are the fun zippers I found. They were on clearance at JoAnn’s for $.97!!! They had all kinds of colors. I’m tempted to go back and buy a bunch more. They were in the section where purse making stuff is.

Aren't these zippers so much fun?

I’ll be back tomorrow with another maternity top (hopefully you aren’t sick of them yet ;).

Psalm 127:3

    Such beautiful, sunny bags! I never think to look by the purse-making supplies for zippers, the ones you found are so much more fun that the basic zippers.
