    Hi everyone! I just made this bag for my mother in law a couple days ago and finally had enough time to take a couple pictures to share with you here on the board.

    It is just a made up pattern from the hip, so to speak. It is quilted all over the outside to give it some stability.

    She loves golfing and goes once a week with my sister in law. (her daughter) so I am thinking she might get a kick out of sporting this bag around.

    What do you think? Think she will like it?

    Best pic I could get.. Sorry

    How could she NOT! I think it's a great idea...she could keep her towel and extra tees, balls, etc. in the bag and always know where they are. Very nice fabrics.

    Oh goodie!! I was a little worried about it. But, if you all say it will be well recieved, I trust that.

    I suppose we are our own worst critic. LOL!

    A beautifully made bag, made specially for someone in their interest with fabric they would love. It will be a hit.

    Very cute fabric. Let us know what she thinks of it when you give it to her. My guess is it will go with her golfing every week. Don't be surprised if she asks you to make others.
