Now that I have been blessed to enjoy Mother's Day, as mother, I can still remember how not so long ago I hurt every time it came around. I have friends and family that have lost their babies or are still in that trying boat, and my heart is especially heavy for them on Mother's Day. I pray that the Lord will comfort their pain and fill that hole in their heart.
Well here are a few pictures of Mother's Day projects I have made in the past. What did you do for Mother's Day? I would love to see.
Hand towels with ribbon trim and iron on letters. I loved how it looked embroidered but was only iron letters. (even though I so wish I had an embroidering machine, sigh dreaming)
This is a rug I made from place mats. Got the idea from my friend Abby at http://www.morningbymorningproductions.blogspot.com/ I bought three fabric place mats from Walmart and then I bought some spray adhesive. I placed the mats how I wanted them and then just picked up the over lapping spots and sprayed according to the directions. This one was for my momma. I think it looks like a fancy mat you could buy from a store. :)
This rug is made from place mats too. I bought 3 plastic place mats from Walmart and over lapped the two green ones just a bit and covered them with the gray one. Then I used some more spray adhesive to make them stick. After they dried I used stencils to paint them. This one was for my mother in law and I made one with red mats for my Grandma. My mother in law used her mat for a table runner instead of a rug and it looks great!
Well those were my Mother's Day projects from last year. This year I made every one a Spring time wreath. Sorry it was way too busy I didn't even snap one pic.
