DIY Christmas Gift Ideas: I Love Grandma Button Tote

The year of Aaron's first Christmas, I made these cute tote bags as gifts for the grandparents. They could also be used as reusable shopping bags, for people you know who would like a green gift. I kept these really simple. I just sewed a rectangle together on three sides, boxed the bottom a little to give it more shape, sewed a simple finished hem on the top, and added ribbon or fabric straps. Then I printed out the phrase "I Love Grandma" (or Grandpa) in fabric transfer paper (remember to do it in reverse) and ironed it on.  Last, I sewed on three buttons in the shape of a heart for decoration. These were well received handmade gifts that were fairly quick to make.
