Here's the last of my handmade Christmas gifts I wanted to share with you. I made this bag for my mom out of a camping line of fabric that Michael Miller has out. I made the straps out of a reddish color print that I already had on hand and made a large pocket on the interior of the bag out of a yellow print I also had on hand.
When I saw this fabric line I knew that it was perfect for my mom and I just had to make something out of it for her. I ordered one yard of it from a seller on etsy.
Kind of on a whim I decided to hand embroider the word 'joy' on a piece of coordinating fabric and sew it onto the interior pocket. To stop it from fraying to badly I just whipped around the edge with a pinking rotary blade. I think it is really cute and love how it makes the bag a little bit more personal and happy. Everything could use a little dose of joy I'm sure!
