Too Belated Mother's Day

When I've made a tote bag for my friend's birthday (the last post), actually I've made totally five same style bags at the same time! LOL
Because I'm really not good at sewing machine, so once I finished to make one, I didn't want to do the same process from the first again!

This for my mother, I wanted to stitch beautiful CEDER HILL's bouquet design for "Mother's day", but couldn't make time to stitch for her, so this is really belated "Mother's Day" gift.

Too late, though! LOL

I stitched her Initial with DMC #814 on purplish-gray linen (which my friend Domy gave me before).

Here are some photos of the leather handle (dark brown one) and fabrics which I used for her bag.

She knew that I was making bags, but she didn't know that I'm also making a bag for her, so when I gave this to her, she was so surprised and seemed really happy!

I'm really glad that she is so happy to get this as a surprised present!

I will show you some other bags' photos later again! LOL
