Well, I am new to the group and new to making bags so here is my first ever bag - a hobo bag I gave to my youngest son's 'significant other'. He had me so worried because when I told him what I was giving her, he said I should have asked and that she is too fussy about 'accessories'. She likes designer only bags, wallets, etc. I decided not to give it to her - he had me that upset - which later he said he was so sorry for and that he didn't mean to do that - that he had just been distracted at work - he felt really bad. ANYWAY, I got her a gift certificate but when they came over, my husband gave her the wrapped gift not telling me he had decided to go with the original plan - Do you get the picture? It was a real comedy of errors! End result - She absolutely adores the bag and hasn't used anything else since she got it about a month ago. She is thrilled! AND I am sooooo relieved! I hate giving home-made gifts and having people not want or appreciate them! It is so awkward!
My son, Corbin says she keeps showing it off - especially the lining and the label! He said "Apparently, it is a big deal to have a bag designed especially for her.... You did really great Mom, my bad, I didn't know.....".. So here is the bag that caused all the commotion....
WELL DONE BAG! I love carrying quilt bags, more than bought ones, they are unique and portrait our talent.
I'm glad she loves it and putting it to good use. It's very pretty.
