This card is made of machine sewn fabric!Happy Mother’s Day everyone!!

As you can only imagine everyone around here at The Handwork Studio loves our mothers. Many of you probably even found your passion for needle arts from your mothers. And we even love each others’ mothers! I can’t even begin to tell you how many great things I had heard about Julia and Alisha’s moms even before I met them! (Hi Randi and Gail!) And then there was that time that Julia and I Skyped with my mom and my cats! Boy, was that funny!

So this Mother’s Day you should show your mother how much you love her! And what's a better way to show her by making her something! I actually got my idea for part of my mother’s day present from The Handwork Studio itself. It is based off of one of the projects we made for Spring Break Camp. We made the cutest ‘Hoppy Spring’ greeting cards that I translated into a card for my mom. You can see my inspiration here at an earlier blog post: Crafting Spring Camp at The Handwork Studio.

I used lots of fabric, did some appliqué, sewed on some paper, gave it some structure with card stock, and presto-chango we had a mother’s day card!! The background of the card is even some vintage fabric I picked up at a tag sale with my mom in my home town.

Sew your own Mother's Day card!

So you can see that you can make your mom a present out of anything! Get creative! And don’t forget about Dad! Father’s Day is right around the corner…
