in the bag

i finally finished SSMDG:VGM (Super Secret Mother's Day Gift: Version Grandmother). yep, it's july, so i'm a little late. the Stepmother version was delivered on-time, but VGM suffered through an extensive debugging process, because a) I sewed the outside bottom on perpendicular to the way I was actually supposed to sew it; and b) i forgot about it for a while, as it was under some other stuff. heh.

anyway. pertinent details: some McCall's pattern for fat quarters. the inside is solids in shades of yellow. as you can see, the front has three pockets, perfect for wooden spoons! or whatever she wants to put in it. my gram recently started going to a fitness class for seniors, so i thought she could use this for her gym stuff. (as an aside, the class is called "Silver Sneakers," which is so adorable it makes my blood sugar rise. gram, who is 85, is the oldest one in the class, and although she thinks the instructor goes too fast, she really likes it, and it's made a big difference, so, three cheers for my gram. when i'm 85 i wanna be just like her.) the green thing tucked into the rightside pocket is a little lanyard for keys, because there's nothing more annoying than having to shuffle through everything just to find your keys.

when i was making this, i was listening to the Dirtbombs, and let me just say, if my sewing machine had a tachometer, it would've redlined.
