A Late Birthday Present

Here at my house birthdays go recognized, maybe not on their exact date, but I will be sending presents. That is what happened with my Mom's birthday. I had ideas in my head for what to make her, but just didn't get around to making anything! We went to Florida at the beginning of March and I was able to make a trip to Hobby Lobby. I found the perfect fabric for my mom there!

This bag is so georgeous! I am completely in love with it! Will I keep it for myself? Nope, I know my mom will get so much more use out of it! If I make anything for myself it will need to be a bit bigger!

This bag is a basic box style tote with some added extras. There are 2 pockets on the front with a cute white ruffle. On the back is a pleated pocket for your phone or keys. On the inside there are 3 slip pockets and a key FOB!

I love the ruffled pockets! They make me smile! I was kind of unsure about the pleated pocket but decided to keep it after I saw it all together! Had I taken it off, I would have make a heart out of the white fabric and had the letter V monogramed on to it and sewed it on instead!

I still have more of this fabric and I am pretty excited about using it! There are so many beautiful things I could make with it!
