Making Mother's Day gifts is always something
I am excited about every year. I try to come
up with handmade gifts that show my appreciation
as to how graceful I feel to have great
mom like my mom, Tama, and American mom, Kim.
I sent them fabric baskets for this day in 2008 and
patchwork pillows in 2009. This year, I decided
to make these little card cases with their
names on them along with flowers. Both Tama and Kim
have sewed up lots of things for me that are so sweet
and personal. They deserve to be the ones to receive
personal handmade gift items too. I am not very sure
if these are practical for them but hopefully
they'll find a use for them.
I have not been as crafty as I wish these days.
My graduation is coming up very soon, so there
are exams, projects, and a whole bunch of
different things that are keeping me from
my crafty space. In busy time like this, I tend
to have fun sewing ideas pop up in my
head for some reasons, so I have been sketching
ideas for future projects like a mini quilt ;)
(Thank you for suggesting to make one!)
Once I graduate in the end of this month,
I'll give lots of crafty time for myself
as a reward for graduation. hehe.
This is a custom fabric basket I finished up
this morning. I think it turned out fun ;)
Oh by the way, I'll have a giveaway for
the next post for sure! I am waiting for
the package from Japan. It should get here
in the mail sometime next week, so I'll probably
have a post a week from now or so.
Thank you for stopping by and reading ;)
