Mother's Day Library Tote

Well, you know how I said I made my mother a super cool Melody Miller Typewriter Library Tote for Mother's Day?  Well, it was my intention to give it to her, really it was.  BUT, I got to thinking, she LOVES my son so much (her first grandson, and she has 4 girls), and is always bragging about him and showing his picture to strangers.  So, I thought I think she would really like something featuring my son better.  Then I stumbled upon this amazing quilt from Tina at Little Blue Cottage that featured appliques of her child's class' hand prints.  Genius.  So I decided to do that on a tote bag, and add a pocket for a picture, so my mom can add her recent favorite picture.  She LOVED the tote bag.  And I get to keep the Typewriter Tote which I LOVE.  We all win.  Hope everyone had a great mother's day.

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
