For my mom's birthday, I made a purse using fabric my grandma sent from Japan:

It looks a little lumpier in the photo than it does in person!  It's got a navy blue lining and magnetic snap.  I got the pattern here: http://www.u-handbag.com/index.php?main_page=news_manager&pages_id=2 (scroll down to the bottom of the page).

I skipped reinforcing the bottom, and they didn't have any bag feet when I went to the store.  So it ended up being a pretty quick project!  I hope she likes it.

Really cute, that fabric is beautiful. Your Mom is going to love it!
