    My mom passed away unexpectedly three weeks ago. While cleaning out her apartment I came across a box of fabric she had tucked in the back of her bedroom closet. I made this from one of the piece's of fabric to send to my sister. Happy Mother's Day to all you moms. Hope have the opportunity to spend it with your mom.

    Blessings!

    I am sorry for your loss. The bag is a wonderful gift. I, too, do not have a mom, but I wish all women friends happy mothers day. Thank you for sharing.

    It is a beautiful gift for your sister. One she will treasure I am sure. I spend mothers day with my mother everyday. Because she is always in my thoughts and memories.

    Beautiful bag, and I'm sorry you have lost your mom. Mine has passed on as well, way too early. Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there...

    What a thoughtful gift for your sister. I lost my mom on Christmas Eve 1977. And, I miss her every day. But, just think what a celebration was going on in Heaven that she got to see. The same can be said for Mother's Day. All the mothers up there will have a very special day!

    Sorry for your loss. That is an amazing gift for your sister. I'm sure it will be even more treasured because of where the fabric came from. My mom passed 15 years ago and Mother's is a tough day. I always spend my Mothers day morning at the cemetary planting flowers, washing her stone and cleaning the statue of Mary I placed there that she would have loved. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

    My mom has been in heaven for 13 years now. She was not really a sewer, but I do have a couple aprons she made in the 40's from feed sacks. I love them and remember her wearing them. They were well used.

    Happy Mother's day, everyone. We do the most important job in the world.

    My condolences to you...and hugs!
    It is so thoughtful that you made your sister a "Mom" purse. I think you should make yourself one, too! You deserve one!

    Here's a big hug, please try not to be too sad. I know it's hard, my mom is gone too, so I feel your loss. But you know she's watching and blessing you and is so proud you used her fabrics to make such a lovely gift for your sister. Jammin' Jane is right - you deserve to make one for yourself, too.

    Enjoy your visit with your sister. God bless you both.

    I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Mother's day is a celebration about our Mother's and their love for us. I pray that tomorrow will be a celebration for you and your sister, with memories of your wonderful Mother. God Bless.
