Pretty Pincushions Perfect for Crafty Mums

If your mum loves her handicrafts and sewing, a pincushion is a wonderfully personal and practical gift choice. You can find kits in craft shops that provide all the materials and instructions that you need to produce a pincushion, however if you want to create one that is more tailored to your own mum, you could design your own. All you need is two same-sized squares of fabric of your choice and some stuffing. You may want to choose a fabric in your mum’s favourite colour, or in a shade that matches her room. Alternatively, you may prefer to choose a material that means something special to her, perhaps from an old favourite outfit, or even fashioned from some of your old baby clothes. Just sew the wrong sides of the fabric together with small stitches, leaving one side unsewn. Turn the right way round and stuff. Using small stitches, sew the fourth side together and you have a beautiful pincushion, ready to be decorated with ribbons, buttons, sequins, or any other detailing you choose. You could even embroider her initials to personalise it further.

Luxurious Homemade Pamper Kits for the Day Spa Experience at Home

Mums have busy lives and spend all day running around after their families. What better way to show how grateful you are than by helping her to relax and unwind after a hard day with a homemade pampering kit? You can prepare your own bath jellies by adding ¾ of a cup of water to a packet of gelatine, and then when it is dissolved, spoon in a half cup of liquid soap and a few drops of an essential oil of your choice, and leave to set. A simple massage oil can be produced by simply adding a few drops of essential oil to 100 ml of sweet almond oil, while tired feet will revel in a foot soak made from 2 cups of Epsom salts mixed with lavender, mint and rosemary essential oils and dried mint and rosemary leaves. There are lots of recipes on the internet for easy-to-make spa products that can be beautifully packaged in mason jars and decorative glass bottles, and put together in an attractive hamper to give your mum a much needed boost.

Beautiful Button Jewellery for a Unique Appeal

If your mum has eclectic tastes in jewellery, button necklaces, earrings and bracelets are cheap and beautiful homemade gifts to make for Mothers Day. If you have jars of unwanted buttons from other craft projects or from old clothing, put them to good use by threading them onto fine jewellery wire. Create matching sets in a single hue or go for a multi-coloured accessory that she will be thrilled to wear.

If your mum would prefer a jewellery set that is more traditional in style and yet stunningly unique, why not visit the Eternity Rose website and discover their beautiful range of glazed rose pendants and earrings.

There is no better way to show the special lady in your life how much you love her and appreciate everything that she does for you than by designing and creating a thoughtful present with your own hands.
