Celebrating Moms

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!!!
