Added a small rosette. The button in the center is from one of Grandma's housecoats. A lovely yellowish and clear.
Sewed small "gussets" across the bottom and inserted a heavy piece of vinyl so it stands up nicely. Anytime I want the handle a tad longer, just untie and retie further to the end.
Was not only fun to just design out and sew, but went rather quickly! Now I have a nice piece of grandma always nearby.
