The one below began with a cute embroidery pattern I'd found in Branson, MO a few years ago. Actually my "Toby" (my name for my wonderful DH) pointed out the pattern (by Jette's Hanging By A Thread) to me when I was looking for something I could make for 3 buddies that Christmas. I did 4 of the stitcheries right away but it wasn't until this February that I decided to design a bag around them and made 4 of these. Then I was on a bit of a roll and made the 3 bags above for my daughter and daughter-in-law's birthday and my daughter's mother-in-law where we stay when we visit them in Canada.
And the roll continues! This one I made for Anne's birthday last week. This one I'm publishing and it should be ready soon.
