Family Tree Tote Bag
Our Hatch family reunion this year spotlighted the best Grandmother of all time- Grandma Clayton. If you read this blog with any sort of regularity, you probably have an inkling why I think that she is so wonderful. Mom had the idea of giving her a family tree tote because Grandma loves bags and is always doing family history. So I took this little project on and had a fun time designing it and sewing it. I wanted to share pictures of the end product. Claire, the cat, also wanted to see my creation. Okay, to be completely honest, she just wanted to sniff it and sit on it. But I'll pretend she was admiring it.
The inside of the bag had a fun owl print,
and the back side had a pocket with the words, "I have a family tree, with branches by the dozens.." embroidered on it.
Some of the family leaves....
Presenting it to Grandma at the reunion. She's wearing her "star of the show" crown. :-)Doesn't she look cute? I love you Grandma Clayton!!! :-)
