Another 241 Tote

241 Tote for mom

After she saw the 241 Tote I made for myself last summer, my mom decided she wanted one, too.  I told her I would make her one for Christmas, and she was fine with that.

However, then we found out we would be moving, and my mom was able to come out for a week to help me pack.  Since she was in town, I thought it would be fun to take her to the LQS and let her pick her own fabric.

My mom is not a sewer, so she wasn't sure initially what to pick.  I told her to just start with a focus fabric...something that jumped out at her and that she loved.  She decided she wanted something whimsical, and these butterflies fit the bill.  After she picked the butterflies, it was pretty easy to help her find coordinates that she liked.  The only thing she didn't pick out was the lining.  She didn't like anything at the store that day, so I ended up finding this Moda basic dot fabric online a little later.  I think it turned out perfectly!
