*My two mother’s – Do not look at this post.*
These little babies are packaged and in the mail.
What a great feeling! A project done AND it will be on time!
I made homemade cards inspired from Made. I sewed fabric scraps onto cardstalk. Here are a few of the designs I came up with.
This was nice for me because I wasn’t following a pattern or stressing out worrying that I wasn’t doing it just right. Anything goes with these cards! I loved them so much that I HAD to make some for me too!
I made coasters inspired from Ruffles and Stuff. Mine turned out a little different than hers.
I loved the look of the lace, but IT did not love me! I was ready to seriously pull my hair out and give up. I really wanted to make these coasters and I already had the muslin part done, so I just grabbed some fabric scraps that were covering my table from the cards and made little squares and sewed those on. I really like how they turned out. It was a good mistake for me. I think they look more like my mom anyway. I loved these so much that I HAD to make some for me too!
Happy Mother’s Day to me!!
Besides trying to wrap the lace, this was an easy sewing project for me. A good one to start with. I feel a little more confident with that dang machine! Honestly, it’s the bobbin that freaks me out. I panic thinking of being in the middle of a project and having something go wrong and I can’t fix it. So I sew when my husband is home and he’s the fixer!
Happy Mother’s Day Ladies!!
