My grandmom really liked the tote bags I made but she doesn't need a big bag like that. I decided a little buttercup bag would be perfect for her. She loves birds so I picked the lining fabrics with birds and trees. I hand-stitched one of the birds onto the front of the bag. I'm giving it to her for mother's day. I hope she likes it Smiley

I'm sure your grandmom will love it.
I really like the little bird on the front.  Smiley

Thanks! It's actually the first time I embroidered something like this. I just drew it on free-hand with a one of the washable markers and stitched over it. I used chain stitch for the blue, stem stitch for the brown, satin stitch for the orange and a french knot for the eye.

I've never been too adventurous when it comes to embroidery myself - I'll have to give it another go Smiley
