The Mama Bag Update

The big black bag is history. Here is the new bag I made her sitting on the walker as we were leaving to go to church yesterday. As you can see its pretty full and I'm thinking I should have made it bigger. But I think the contents would expand to fit whatever the size!



There was one heart stopping moment when the ushers were taking up the collection at church. She couldn't find her donation! I sat there helplessly as the usher went on his way to the next pew without Mama's money. After church I asked her if she had a problem finding her money and she said, "No, she just forgot to get it together."



You wouldn't believe how much lighter this bag is too! Evidently change had been accumulating in the bottom of the old big black bag and when she switched bags, she put all the change in a jar. Now she plans to put all her change in the jar and not in the bag. I appreciate that since I am the official bag carrier when we go places. :o)

It is so much fun to see the bag you made for your mom. I'm hoping the change will stay at home. Seems to me it does not take much to really load a bag down. I bet she will show her friends what a lovely bag you made for her.

That bag is so pretty. I'm sure it will brighten your mama's day every time she looks at it.

Very pretty bag, Debbie. I hope it works out great for your mama, she may like it so much and want a different for each season now,
you better keep sewing!

I'm so glad your mom got to use and appreciate her bag right away. I guess that means you don't have to send it to me after all, lol. Have a great week.
