Motherly Love Tote Bag

Moms carry a heavy burden between trying to raise a decent person and physically lugging around sunblock, medicine, and everything but the kitchen sink. Ease mom’s load this Mother’s Day by giving her a Motherly Love Tote Bag from ILovetoCreate. It’s a useful gift, and she’ll be glad she raised such a resourceful child who knows how to make a tote bag. Follow these directions to make a cute, easy tote bag design that leaves no mystery as to who’s the main mama. This is an easy-to-paint gift for little monsters of every age. Make the design specific to what she loves, such as flowers, hearts or stars. M is for momand master of the universe.
