Happy Mother’s Day! We will be heading out shortly to spend the day with two of my very favorite moms:
My mom, and HER mom (my “Mimi”)! We are all going to visit Mimi in The Villages, which is always a fun time. Not only are my grandparents really fun people, but whenever we go out to visit them, we always get to take their golf cart out for a spin around town. The Villages is a very unique and interesting place. It’s a retirement community, but ENORMOUS and unlike any other you have ever seen. I’m sure I will elaborate on that in a future post.
I knew I wanted to make both my mom and Mimi something as part of their gifts. I decided to go back to the camera/gadget case that I made the other day. I think this has become my new favorite go-to simple project. I think my favorite part about it is that you don’t have to do much fabric cutting. I would love sewing about a zillion times more than I already do if I didn’t have to cut fabric. I figured my mom could use hers to hold her iPod Nano and earbuds when she isn’t using it. And I thought Mimi could use hers for her camera.
If you are new to sewing or just want something quick and easy to stitch up, I urge you to give this one a try! It’s perfect! Check out the tutorial here, at Sew, Mama, Sew.
I hope my mother and grandmother like the cases I made for them. Of course, they both deserve so much more. I hope my mom and all the moms out there know how much they are needed and loved today and everyday. I love you Mom!!!
