Gretchen Schock shares her love of recipes, crafts and frugal living. She also speaks very opening about the challenges and triumphs of parenting a neurotypical child and a child on the Autism Spectrum. After a breast cancer scare in 2012, she decided to say goodbye to her nightly glasses of Chardonnay. It was time to get sober and live life with eyes wide open! The CocktailMom name remains, however with a new focus on healthy and authentic living.


An Everyday Hobo Bag

Just like you I am swimming in free grocery shopping bags. But when I recently received a bag of fabric from a local friend who was clearing out her fabric stash and discovered this hobo bag precut in the fabric pieces it inspired me to make an everyday bag as a gift for my best friend in Pittsburgh.

I paired the precut bag with other fabric I had in my stash to create the lining and front pocket. The size is perfect for picking up a bottle of wine and a baguette for an impromptu picnic or running errands around the city while still being fashionable.

To "Mom-friend Lauren": whenever you want to purge your fabric, let me know. It helps me cross gifts off my list. Thanks!
