One of the teachers I've supported the last 2 years just had a milestone birthday so I decided to make her a tote bag. What girl doesn't like a good selection of bags?? I used beautiful batik fabrics - they make everything look richer and deeper with their wonderful colors and patterns. I followed a pattern from AllPeopleQuilt.com.
I have a confession to make: every time I walked by the bag I couldn't help but admire it. It was probably the sparkles... they make everything better!
I was going to put homemade cookies in the bag, but ran out of time to bake them. I put my favorite historical fiction novel in, "Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet". A friend from England said whenever they gift a bag or purse they always put a coin in for good luck. I found one from her birth year and added that too.
Happy Birthday Nicole!
