Mother's Day Gifts :)

I had to wait to post this until after Mother's Day. These are the gifts I made for the special Mother's in my life.
For my wonderful sister, who is not my mother but acts like it (LOL), I made this adorable bag. It is a slightly modified version of Amy Karol's pleated bag. I took a picture of her boys and put them on one side. The denim on the bag is from a pair of my capris I didn't care for. I used the pocket on the other side of the bag.
I also made this cute fabric flower pin. Finally a no cash wallet from Amy Karol's book. I filled the purse with her favorite juice and cookies.
For my Mom, my sister and I put together a pedicure basket. A ped egg, nail polish, nail stickers, and cuticle salve. I made her a fabric flower brooch. The bottom box is full of our home movies. My sister took all of the Vhs movies and transferred them to dvd. It was a good mother's day.

The videos to dvd... such a great idea that I have been wanting to do for a long time now. Pretty brooch!

I used that same tote (color and everything) for a housewarming gift. :)
