The giveaway is now closed, but you can still get my book!
Check out my guide to starting a craft business!
I made these 3 quick and Cool Grocery Totes (a pattern from Sewing to Sell) for my mama for Mother’s day. It is one of my favorite projects from the book since it’s quick, there is little fabric waste, and the result is a fun and useful bag. I really like the idea of making sets too- Wouldn’t groceries look adorable in these bags??
I also made a set for my mother in law, Trish. I love these bright colors and I hope she will too!
Looking for a great Mother's Day idea?
All fabrics were from JoAnn Fabrics. The yellow lining fabric on the fruit bags is Lotta Jansdotter for JoAnn. They also have some really pretty Cloud 9 fabric there now too!
I made a youtube video about these Quick and Cool Grocery Bags that you can see here.
Make a gift box for mom!
