In leiu of giving my traditional hanging flower basket to my mom this year for Mother's Day, I decided to make her some knitting accessories. She is traveling more and more for her job and goes to regular knitting meetups with a group of friends. I thought this gift might be more useful.
The tote pattern I used is "Amanda's Knitting Bag" from The Sometimes Crafter. (I'll be talking more about it during Purse Palooza next month, so stay tuned!) The matching project bag was modified from Jeni's lined drawstring bag tutorial. I essentially added a canvas bottom, interfaced the outer fabrics, and changed the dimensions up a bit.
By the way, that brown yarn prop up there is a scarf I started making when I was about 8 months pregnant with Cooper. I think I'm going to give up knitting as a hobby.
Are you making things for Mother's Day this year?
