Grandpa Goes on Vacation

My dad commissioned me to make him a bag. We took a trip to Joann’s for fabric, and I don’t think he’d ever been in one. We traveled around the store to find the best options, and we went to the outdoor fabric section.

For 1/2 off, there was a navy fabric with a hammock and palm tree motif on it. We paired it with a quilting fabric for the inside lining that’s crackled brown.

He needed something to carry library books.

I got a text from him last night telling me he overloaded the bag at the library with too many books and a seam ripped. “Grandpa Goes on Vacation” is going to have to go on a vacation away from my dad so I can fix it…
