Her husband is in the Marine Reserves and expecting to deploy sometime within the year, so I decided she and her little one HAD to have a bag to support their hero!
My amazing (and I mean A-M-A-Z-I-N-G) mama spent hours trying to accomplish my "vision"... without a pattern I might add. (Sorry Mama!) I found a BDU jacket at a local military surplus outlet, but couldn't find a pattern for shirts-turned-into-bags anywhere.
I found adorable pink poka-dotted liner and a fabulous shabby chic lace ribbon at hobby lobby when I was on vacation visiting my sister, then buttons and ribbon to finish it off.
I LOVE how it turned out!
I first got the idea from a delightful website called Hero On My Arm.
These ladies are amazing! Be sure to check them out!
Looks like my four and a half minutes are up...
I promise to be a better blogger after this crazy move!
