So, Mother's Day is coming up and my mum will actually be here visiting when that day rolls around! Instead of the usual card in the mail, I'll get to give her a gift this year (hey, postage to Germany is crazy expensive). After coming across some really nifty sewing tutorials I decided that I would try my hand at making her gifts. These will include a zippered pouch (make-up bag), a coin purse/credit card holder, and a purse to hold all the goodies. I have finished up the zippered pouch. . . that was an interesting experience. I had until this project never had any dealings with zippers in my sewing adventures. I'm not going to say it was easy, but it wasn't quite as bad as I had anticipated. Other than a few mumbled expletives, wrist pain from picking stitches, and a mild headache, it was a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. . . and evening.
Ok, for those of you who are in need of some gifts to make for someone (or yourself!), here are some links:
