My favorite part about Mother’s Day are the homemade cards that my children make. Of all of the drawings and pictures that they make for me, I think the Mother’s Day ones are the most important ones. I keep them all in the top drawer in my nightstand.
However, I also have a role to play as a daughter. Here are some inexpensive homemade gift ideas that you can make (possibly even with things on hand) for your own mother (or yourself!):
Make earrings for .15 a pair.
Make this running stitch scarf.
Buy strawberries on sale and make some strawberry jam.
Any of the great Graphics Fairy images would be excellent for a simple zippered pouch, though I’m particularly enamored of the French post card image used here. If you’re like me and own a black and white laser printer, you can use the Citra Solv method to transfer one of her free black and white images to fabric for a gift.
Top off your gift with this homemade paper bow.
