I hope all the Mothers out there had a lovely day.
I haven’t had the chance to see my Mum today, just chatted on the phone a couple of times, but tomorrow I will see her to give her this little gift.
The pattern is from Joy Patch and is shared on the Among The Gum Trees. It was so quick and easy to make. I knew I didn’t have time to complete a stitchery, so just appliquéd a round fussy cut bouquet. It looked quite bland, so I added the ric rac with little french knots, which looks much better. I hope she likes it, as it is usually Mum giving me covered coat hangers. They are so much nicer for hanging your clothes.
A little bit of recycling that I do is use thin strips of batting (about an inch and a half wide, or whatever I have), that have been cut off the edges of a quilt when trimming before binding, to wrap the timber coat hangers. (I throw away nothing!) Then just another smoother piece over the top of that gives a lovely plump finish.
Now that is just beautiful and such a wonderful idea for a Mother's Day present. I will get to make these one day. They are on my to-do-list.
Wow Janice, that looks t'riffic!! I love your rosy applique' and the ric rac just finishes it off beautifully. I bet your Mum just loved it :o)!!! Hope you had a fabulous day ...
That's really lovely ! I hope you and your mum have a nice catchup .
Beautiful - so lovely and sweet!! Thanks for the tip about using up those edges of wadding! :-)
