This Prairie Point Star Ornament Tutorial is still one of my most popular sewing tutorials. People love to make them to hang as decorations in their own homes and to give as gifts. And who better than to give one to than your Mom or mother-in-law or to that woman in your life who has been like a second Mom.
The tutorial shows them made in Christmas fabrics but they can be made in so many different fabric combination to suit the recipient, the season or to match a person's home décor.
Turn any blank book into a pretty journal for your Mom by making a fabric book cover for it. The tutorial demonstrates how to make a cover for a composition book but you can use those same instructions to cover any book of any size.
Does your Mom like to sketch or paint? Make a cover for an art journal.
Perhaps her favorite inspirational or devotional is showing it's age. A book cover can protect it from further wear and tear and help her to keep using it for years to come.
You can have a pretty table runner cut and sewn in about an hour following my One Hour Table Runner Tutorial. In fact, the instructions include directions to make two table runners: one the reverse of the other. You can give one to Mom and keep one for yourself to brighten both of your spring décor.
She'll never lose her thimble again once you make her a thimble pip to store it in.
These cute little pips are completely hand sewn so they will take you an afternoon to complete but they are easy to make and turn out so cute that you may find yourself wanting to make one for yourself and some for other family and friends who sew and quilt.
