    I have a peronsal tie to this cause my grandson is mildly autistic. These are my newest tote purses made to bring awareness to autism, I hope they sell and more people become aware of this growing epidemic.

    Perfect Fabric and design choices!

    Temple Grandin sure has helped to bring autism awareness and understanding of it more to the fore front!

    She's an incredible person. I've met her and have heard her speak re her other profession, in animal care and handling. When I saw the movie, I couldn't believe how well the actress (Clare Dane, right?) had emulated Temple ... it was so bang on from what I have come to know her as. Impressive!

    Good Luck with your efforts!

    One of the neatest bowtucks I have seen so far! Great job.
    And so sweet of you to honor your grandson that way.

    Hi, just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate your message on your page. I wrote it down and want to use in some card that I like to make. Hope this is okay with you.

    Love the material. I just bought some of puzzle material. Where did you get the matching material? Might have to get some and try the purse. My grandson, Oliver, age 2 (soon to be 3) has autism. We wear pins, t-shirts, and write congressmen for awareness. I hope your purses get a lot of attention.

    This isn't quite the same one, but I had this in my favorites.
