Okay, just wondering if you all have any brilliant ideas for what I could make my hip grandmother for her birthday in a few days.  For Christmas, I made her a bright blue shawl - so I think another shawl in less than a month would be a little odd..........  She loves designer clothes and designer furnishings.... 

Any ideas you could give me would be so appreciated!  TIA!!

Well if she's into designer stuff, maybe this cute nordstrom hobo bag would be good http://shortylamcrochet.blogspot.com/2006/11/nordstrom-hobo-bag.html

Thank you so much for the ideas! Right after I read the post with the purse pattern I remembered a cute purse pattern I had (and the handles I had already purchased).  I worked that up in a few hours and sent it out to her.  With these links I'll have gift ideas for her for the next few Christmas & birthday presents Cheesy  I love all the links and I know that she will love them all!
