Green Checked Bag

A large project bag that I made as a birthday gift.
The cross stitch on the front is a saved piece that was damaged while it was in storage.
I wanted to use it because it is still lovely.
I added the word "make" on the embroidery to suit the bags use.  
The lining is a cotton print from several years ago.
The casing for the drawstring is a striped fabric that I turned to the wrong side out.
It toned down the coloring so that it wouldn't grab too much attention.
Happy Birthday, Mom!!  :-)
