My mom recently made me a book containing hilarious note, report cards and drawing from the first decade, or so, of my life.  

My favourite part is the drawing section, where I found a drawing of my mom I'd done when I was 3 or 4.  She had 3 kids under 5 years of age when I drew this, so I think the expression is probably accurate.

I copied the drawing and embroidered it onto some linen.  I then took the completed emboidery and turned it into the pocket for a homemade shopping bag I made her.  

Here are the results:












Thanks for looking!
