Handmade Mother's Day

Share it Please


Mother’s Day is all about letting the number one lady in your life know how awesome she is, and nothing says I Love You like a handmade gift.


As patchworkers/quilters/sewers/seamstresses/crafters/creators we are pretty good at raising the bar when it comes to handmade gifts, but if your mind jar of ideas is a little empty or you are running short on time, here is some inspiration for awesome handmade gifts for your favourite gal;


Cushions

 Patchwork Cushion Kits
Quick to make (compared to a quilt), easily adapted and always impressive, cushions are a great gift that will add a wow to any room.

As an added bonus, the four featured above are all pre-cut kits from The Cotton Patch!


Tote Bags




Show your love and save the planet at the same time. Tote bags are a great option as they are easy to make so you can really go to town with the details.

We love this super easy tutorial from Purl Soho

Everybody loves a mug rug! They are miniature pieces of art, plus you can never have too many. Add a personal touch by coordinating them to your favourite lady’s lounge/kitchen/craft space.


If your mother dearest is as into mug rugs as we are, then this whole book dedicated to mug rugs is a must!

I have been OBSESSED with fabric baskets ever since seeing these made by A Crafty Hen using fabrics from Dashwood Studio's Altitude collection.

From storing your sewing tools to a space for your socks, or keeping your house plants cosy, their usefulness is never ending. Oh, and the look amazing!

Apartment Therapy do a great tutorial on how to make them

















Lampshades




























Thanks to these Lampshade Kits it is now super easy to make your own - the hardest part will be deciding what fabric to use!

These lampshades make perfect gifts as you can match the fabric to your mom's favourite room, they are easy to do in an evening and will surely be the envy of all other gift givers.


However, if handmade is just not going to happen this time around, no worries! Here’s a few gifts that your main maker momma is sure to love.
