Did you have a nice Mother's Day? My Mother's Day was church and then home to prep for a dinner party with some lovely friends... a little going away meal for some Army and church friends who will be moving on to their next adventure. I made lasagna on Saturday, so there was not much cooking involved, and each of the other ladies brought things to contribute, so it was such a nice time. Want to see what I sent the Mommies for Mother's Day? I have a Mom, a StepMom and a Mother-in-Law... so I usually try to prep some nice handmade things to send to them. Last year I kept it simple with a little zippered pouch, a frame with a recent photo in it, a handmade card and a little Starbucks for a fun treat one day.
Handmade card... I made the image and text on PicMonkey and printed it on white cardstock. Then I had some thick grey paper leftover from invitations I made way back when and some fun printed washi tape for decoration and easy application.
Pouch No. 1. I wanted to get some practice and get over my zipper fear, so I decided to make some fun zippered pouches with some of my stash fabric. Both sides are the same.
