HI! I'd love to share with you something my girls and I made for my Mother-in-law for Mother's Day.
Of course a cup of tea in a pretty tea cup (thanks Judith) was in order as I worked on the crocheted edging.
My girls and I worked to make some new hankies for her. Something you couldn't buy at Walmart.
For each we hemmed the fabric. Then we used an embroidery needle to do a blanket stitch around the edge. With that in place we each added a different edge to each hanky. There were a couple more that were finished after this picture that made it in the package. :)
Below, I also made up a couple with lace ribbon.
We hope she enjoys them, even if it's just for blowing her nose. ~smiles~
With the hankies, we sent this card. She loves red and vibrant colours as well, so we thought this would suit her. I used a piece of patterned paper with the flowers on it on which I layered a piece of lovely red paper that I was gifted along with the lovely creamy textured pressed paper.
To this was added some orange twine and some crocheted flowers and the pearls as the finishing touch.
You can see the feathered paper better in the picture below. It adds such a nice delicate detail.
Thank you for dropping by! I pray you have a lovely day!
