Mother's Day DIY Gift

Mother's Day is coming up in a few days ...I wanted to make something for her this year, so I went to Pinterest for inspiration. I found a great tutorial for "dressing up" reusable bags. My mom is a practical person and I know she uses reusable bags all the time, so this is something I'm hoping she'll appreciate. I found the tutorial on Thirty Handmade Days.

My version is slightly different from the one on Thirty Handmade Days. Their tutorial says to paint "Joy" on the banner, but I found some pretty vintage sheets at the thrift store and wanted to use them. So, instead of painting the word I made an applique with my vintage fabric.

The little bag made out of my vintage fabric holds 4 magents. I made these magnets by printing off pictures of me and my siblings and then I used modge podge to secure them to the back of little glass stones. I used a hot glue gun to attach a magnet to the back.

...that's me holding the cat. :)
