Mother's Day gift

I wanted to make something special for my Mum for Mother's Day to show her how much I love her. There were lots of ideas, however, I decided to make a practical gift. In recent months my Mum has been colouring for relaxation. I made an elegant pencil case in Paperie (by Amy Sinibaldi)

The lace was a trim I had sewn on one of my dresses I no longer have 

I added some hand stitching to the front of the pouch

I love the sweet mushrooms!

I crocheted mint green perle cotton for a zipper pull

Ready for gifting to my Mum tomorrow

I hope you all have a wonderful, memorable Mother's Day

  1. This is the prettiest pencil case I have ever seen Julia! The white lace trim is a beautiful addition, one with personal significance too. I hope both you and your mother had a wonderful Mother's Day.

  2. The nicest compliment I have ever received! Thank you Karen. I'm glad I kept the lace from my dress. The perfect look to finish off the pencil case. Thanks we both had a lovely Mother's Day. I hope you did too! Julia xx
