Hi everyone. I scanned this picture of my mom & dad a while ago and printed it onto fabric. It has been begging me do make something out of it so tonight I made this bag. I miss them terribly and will be proud to carry them with me!  I'll call this my memory bag. I'm thinking of putting some very tiny swarovski crystals on the Christmas tree behind them. What do you think?

I love it!  It totally rocks!  This would be a lovely anniversary gift for a couple who have been married for a long time.

Oh what a lovely idea! I miss my parents a great deal also...I may see if I have any photos that would look nice printed out on fabric. I think a few crystals put on the tree would look nice.

Also, the design of and stitching on the bag looks wonderful.

What an excellent idea. I have my parents wedding picture from 57 years ago. I think I will do this for my Mom, she will get a kick out of it. I also think the crystals are a good idea.
