For Mom

My mom is not a sewer or crafter or even a teeny bit artsy at all. So when it comes to anything like that, she runs to me with her requests. She often asks for some thread and a needle to hem a pair of pants or sew on a button. She knows I have an endless supply of such stuff. Well I decided to make things easier and I’m going to give her her own convenient sewing jar for Mother’s Day. I have seen so many tutorials for these, but I especially love this one with it’s pin-cushion lid from Creative Ramblings:


So I bought a jar, and I found some cute sewing supplies at our local Hypermarket – in little tins! I bought a tape measure in a cute little round tin, a tin of buttons, and a tin filled with pearl-head pins. I added a book of needles, 4 different coloured spools of thread and a small pair of needlework scissors.

I found this cute sewing label at The Graphics Fairy :


I edited it in Photoshop into a label for my jar complete with a little quote:

I am going to hang this matching card off the gift too:

And just for fun I made three other ‘vintagey’ tags which you can use for any occasion:

Have a wonderful Mother’s Day tomorrow!

What a cute idea! I'm sure your mom loved it, what a thoughtful gift. I think I'll make one of these kits for my daughter who is moving out soon.
