This feminine “Rosetta Ruffle Bag” is elegant, but so easy to put together!

For the mom who loves to cook, stitch up this pretty “Betsey Apron”  also from Sis Boom’s Jennifer Paganelli and Carla Hegeman Crim. This easy-sew apron is cute and fashionable, but still practical for everyday wear. Make the design even more unique with the addition of pockets, a monogram or fun embellishments.

This Case Study – Tailored Tote” from the Scientific Seamstress, Carla Hegeman Crim, is stylish and functional. With lots of exterior and interior pocket options, it’s ideal for toting around items galore, from sewing supplies to beach gear. This “Case Study – Boxy Bag,” also from the Scientific Seamstress’ Carla Hegeman Crim, can be used in a number of practical ways. The sturdy yet soft design makes it great for storing everything from makeup to travel items! Make it extra special by stitching it in mom’s favorite colors.

This “Union Jack Tea Cosy” is cute, functional and sure to brighten any kitchen space. Selected from the book Stitch at Home by British author Mandy Shaw, this easy project download features fun decorative elements from abroad. The cheerful “Embroidered Napkins and Napkin Rings” set also makes a perfect gift for Mother’s Day. The project download is pulled from Jodie Rackley’s book Happy Stitch.
