Sewing Goodies (Ideas, Sales, and Projects) for Mother’s Day

Mother's Day is a great holiday for indulging your creativity. Moms love handmade gifts.

I had to laugh last night when I opened my home e-mail and saw a message from my father: “Don’t forget about Mother’s Day!” No worries, Dad – I’ve got it covered. I even have the card already. It never hurts to have that little reminder, though!

Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 9. If you love to sew, have a mom that loves to sew, or if that criteria fits you both, Mother’s Day is a shopping bonanza, with plenty of sales and gift ideas at popular sewing Web sites. I’ve compiled a roundup of a few, but please fill us in on more with your comments!

Butterick and McCall’s Mother’s Day gift ideas: McCall’s Pattern Company is promoting some of its quilted accessories patterns as great gifts for Mom. Pattern M6905 features a variety of adorable and quick sewing accessories with a pretty and feminine look. I love the many-pocketed apron accented with rickrack and the flower-embellished sewing machine cover in particular.

As Simplicity Patterns says, there’s nothing like a handmade gift that fits her personality to really say “I love you, Mom.” Simplicity is promoting patterns for fashion-conscious moms (check out the chic shrugs and boleros of pattern 2478), ecology-minded moms (the Go Green Pattern Collection) and organized moms (the mug organizers of pattern 2450 are super cute and must be great stash-busters). You can see more ideas at Simplicity.com.

It’s not strictly a Mother’s Day sale, but the timing is right: Joann.com is offering a 40 percent discount on one regularly-priced item through Saturday, May 8. Visit the home page to see the discount code to enter at checkout (some exclusions apply).

A special “shop” for Mom at Fabric.com: The site has compiled great gift and project ideas in one section you can view for inspiration. There are sewing and crafting books and CDs, gorgeous gift wrap, and some of the cutest notions I’ve ever seen – the Tape Measure Buddies. The smiling bumblebee is really sweet. Maybe I’m not quite done shopping for Mom after all…

Thanks for reading and Happy Mother’s Day (in advance)!
