I love this pattern for reusable grocery bags-- http://www.michellepatterns.com/product/easy-reusable-grocery-bag
I have used it multiple times for gifts (including Mother's Day!) so it is well worth the $7.

I have no link. Mother's Day isn't that happy for me this year as we have just had to put my mother in an assisted living community for dementia. So over the Memorial Day weekend, we will be working in her condo disbursing things and getting it ready to sell. Sorry no link, but do I still qualify for the drawing?! I did make her a quilt..pink hearts out HST's and sent it to her
