Mother's Day Gift

I saw this post at eighteen25 and knew it would make the perfect Mother's Day gift for Nolan's mom. After making the brag books, Nolan pointed out that while they were perfect for his mom's purse, what would stop them from getting damaged? Using some left over fabric from another project, I made a carrying pouch, and used this tutorial to make the rosette and cut a leaf from the fabric and stitched around the edge to make the perfect embellishment. I was pleased with how it all turned out, and my mother-in-law loved it.
