I've been dying to share some of my projects lately but they have all been for presents so I've had to keep a lid on it. Now that Mother's Day is upon us, I can do a little show and tell.
For my Mother-in-law in Germany I made a set of mug rugs:
Front and Back views
This fabric is from Lilac Hill and reminded me of some fabric she picked out when we were in PA last time they visited. I left the present choice up to my husband and although I would have liked to make her more, he insisted this would be a good present. What do I know, I'm just the work horse :)
Silly me tho, I was bugging him 2 weeks ago to mail them out ASAP and once they were on their way to Germany I realized DUH Mother's Day is a week later than I thought! Ugh... o well, she got them a week early, better than being late.
After torturing myself trying to decide what to make, I finally asked my mom what she would like for Mother's Day and she requested a squared zipper bag. Seriously mom, you think that's all you are getting from me? Think again! haha
So here is what I came up with:
Zipper pouch made from Moda's Bliss
A Sprocket Pillow with the last of the Bliss fabric
A squared zipper bag with cat fabric (we do call her the cat lady ;-))
... and then I threw a couple holiday charm packs in the larger bag for her to play with
