Gifts to sew for mother's day

It's almost that time of year again, Mother's Day is on it's way.  So we're all starting to wonder what to make for the most important person in our lives.  We've picked out the best projects to make for mums from our big project's selection.

Make up bag sewing project for mum's


Boxy Make Up Bag

This spacious make up bag makes a great gift, you could even put a few little treats inside for your mum too.  Or a gift voucher.  Find the tutorial here.

 For something really spectacutal why not make her this brilliant quilted make up bag with lights either side of the mirror so she can check her make up no matter where she is.

 Notebook covers

We have 3 different notebok covers projects to choose from on the site, ideal for Mother's Day Gifts.  They would work for notebooks or diaries.  Choose from the pretty fabric book cover (pictured above),  the patchwork journal cover with pen pocket or the upcycled shirt book cover.

How to sew a purse

Ladies' purse project

Pick out fabric in your mum's favourite colours and make her the perfect purse.  This purse project will fit plenty of cards in as well as your notes and coins.  If you have any pretty lace zips you can use one on the coin section as a decorative touch.  Find the project here: Ladies' purse project
