Mother’s Day gifts don’t have to be expensive… what’s appreciated more is the thought and effort that has gone into creating something personal and special. With children at home at present why not get them on board to create something unique for a special granny / nanny they may not have seen for some time? This idea from Retford Textile Group is sure to be a hit – a useful pin cushion which would be appreciated by a mum and / or granny.
The star design is off-cuts of felt, back and blanket stitch, button and some soft padding. The appropriate message just says it all! For those who have more knowledge, layering felt fabrics on a square base provides inspiration to create a winter’s day scene.
Thanks for the idea Retford Textile Group!
