Sew & Tell and Happy Mother's Day!

So what are you guys planning for today?  Lunch with mom?  That's what we are gonna do later today with my boy and get some flowers from the farmer's market for my mother's altar.  I don't know what these "bag" ladies are doing today, but I'm sure they will have their own quality time with their mothers. 
Kimi stopped by the other day with her gorgeous Birdie Sling.  She got some more fabrics to make more Birdies.  She used Anna Maria Horner's purple print for her first one.  Such a beautiful print! 
Next comes Koko's tote.  I gave her a private lesson to make this cute tote.  This is based on another sample bag that I was working on along with the granny bag.  She used Lotta's Glimma in pink, and this is her first time making a bag.  And she loved it!
So Sandra signed up at a very last minute for the granny bag class.  She showed up at the door to see if it was still available.  Sure, I took her in.  She is an experienced sewer, but there is always room to learn new things.  Sorry about the poor quality of the photo, but the bag has a black pin stripe chevron body and teal handles.  It actually is a very pretty combo!
And here comes Amy whose mom is an adept sewer.  She is a very beginner and just bought a sewing machine.  BTW, I am really impressed with her machine for the price and quality.  So if you are searching for one, check Brother CS-6000i.  Anyway, we decided to make her bag a bit larger than the original size because she wanted to make the handles a bit longer.  You know,  proportion is an important thing in bag making.  And we found out it is a really nice size.  Yup, I am stealing this size.  Thanks Amy :-) Your mom will be so proud!
Thank you, everyone!  They all look cute!!!
And have a wonderful Mother's Day!
