My grandma has a birthday Sunday, so I made her this bag. She crochets, but all she makes are scarves and rugs. My mom told me she carries her projects around in a plastic shopping bag, so I decided to make her this bag. It is lined with a pink fabric.





Update: I gave my grandma her bag today along with a crochet bowl I made. She was thrilled! She said she loved it and she was so excited when she unwrapped it, like a little kid almost. She was very thankful and said how nice it was to get something home made.
Thanks for looking!

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

Aww, my grandma was the one who taught me how to crochet! If she were still around I'd totally do something like this for her. Really nice!
