her mother's footsteps
Eve decided, like her mother, to make many of her Christmas gifts. Also like her mother, it is the middle of January and there are several still not finished.
I am very proud of her chosen project, to make 12 tote bags for her friends. She looked at her purchased bags, looked online for patterns, came to me for technical support, and designed her own pattern. She raided my collection of solids and purchased cotton webbing for the handles. I love how she is embellishing them with buttons from my button collection. I also am amused that she considers these nearly free gifts, since she only had to pay for the webbing. Apparently my fabrics and buttons and needles fell like manna.
