Mothers Day Sewing

Just before Christmas my Mum and Dad bought themselves a caravan, and when I made this needlecase a while ago Mum hinted that it would be handy to have one in the caravan for when they are away on long trips. So this is what i've come up with for Mother's Day:

A covered journal for her to record all their trips in:
I used Natalie Bird's "From the Heart" pattern book for the stitchery

And a little zippered sewing pouch, complete with sewing goodies and a mini needle-case:

I modified Bloom's Journal cover tutorial for the journal, and used this tutorial from Twelve22 for the zippered pouch. The fabric I used was leftover from a quilt I made years ago (and for the life of me I can't remember what on earth it's called):

I think Mum is going to love her pressie.... lets just hope she doesn't decide to read my blog in the meantime!

Until next time...


  1. you are just a whirl of a machine........more beautiful projects........hope your Mum doesn't call in here and peek........

  2. What a perfect present. I'm sure she will certainly love it. Let's hope she doesn't read your blog. I'm sure she will still act surprised. LOL!
    Now I'm off to look at the zipper pouch tutorial as I need a new pencil case.

  3. Your sewing gifts are perfect. She is going to love them!

  4. Wow Trace...your mum will be thrilled...

  5. That zipper pouch is just the cutest one I have ever seen...I bet she was thrilled getting it..hugs Khris
