This is a gift for my niece-in-law, to go with the Ethel Tote she purchased.
She gave me a lip balm she'd put on Facebook, and told me' "Your money is no good here."
She and my nephew have been married for a bit now, and I've never given her anything.  Embarrassed
(She's a nurse at the local clinic, and that's where I met her.)
Anyway, I decided to make her a bag. I'd shown her some of the bags here on Craftster, and she really liked one of the ones with a bow. She often posts on FB about wine, so that's where the grapes band and handles came from.
Here's a few pics of the progress:


I think it turned out alright. So, what do you think, Craftsters and guests? Not bad, alright, good?
Feedback welcome.

She will love it!  I like your fabric choices.  The thoughtfulness and love that went into this bag cannot be bought.

God doesn't send people to hell.  He simply honors their choice.

Thank you, JS.
She seems to like both of them.


I gave a Zucchini loaf in this one (superstition says, "A bag given empty will stay empty."). And I included the recipe as well.

So, she's happy with them.

 That was so sweet and she looks like she is loving the bag. It's bigger than I was imagining. Perfect-sized actually. The bow is a pretty touch.

Thank you, Gozer.

The bow is dual coloured because neither my daughter nor I could decide which colour looked the best. She came up with the idea of using both colours, and had a picture to show what she meant. I think the dual coloured bow sets it off just right.
