Yesterday was my mother-in-law's birthday, and we celebrated by spending several days in San Diego with her and my father-in-law. It was a great little vacation -- lots of fun activities and family time. Before we drove down there on Monday, I sewed up a little gift for her.
I'm a huge fan of anything by Rifle Paper Co., including this adorable shopping list pad which I picked up at Anthropologie. A few prints by Melody Miller, some twill tape and batting, a rubber band, and a wooden button all came together in about an hour to make a simple little carrier that fits nicely inside a purse. I love quick projects like these which can be easily pulled out when I need a nice gift in a hurry.
Happy Birthday, Grandma Mary. We love you!

Really cute little gift, Love San Diego, hope you had fun.ReplyDelete
I made something very similar for my quilting ladies...I made it just a bit deeper in the pocket and threw in a small calculator from the $ store. Made them about 5 years ago and I still see them in their bags sometimes.ReplyDelete
