Follow your dreams


Here are the photos of the infamous quilted bag. What you see here is two sided quilted fabric with roses on one side and blue denim on the other. On the outside I stitched on the holding hands appliqué which I made out of red felt. I didn't get a close up of the red hem on the top of the bag but it has a very pretty decorative stitch on it. Inside you can see that there is a separator which has a pocket on each side (yes it's that pocket). For the red strap I stitched ribbon up and down it that said "follow your dreams". This was one of a few gifts I made for my mothers birthday (I'll post the rest later), and her wondrous response sang through the air "I love it", sigh, it was so worth it! -click image to enlarge, yes those are her hands on the left-
