Using scraps from a nightgown/robe set and a skirt I’d made, plus lavender bedsheet scraps, I made hats for my little granddaughter.
I made yo-yos with more scraps.
Inspired by some I saw online, I made these sets of felt bunny hair (alligator) clips for my granddaughters.
Using an old Mary Engelbreit calendar and a 70 year-old children’s book, I made Mother’s Day cards for my girls. (Our older daughter is expecting #2!) I did some French knots on the Engelbreit “wallpaper.” Inside, I copied a passage from Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women, forming a little book.
I read Alcott books to our girls when they were little. During some passages, tears streamed down all three of our faces! Here is the passage I copied for my girls’ cards:
Finally, I embroidered these Mother's Day cards. They too were inspired by a card I’d seen online. The two on the right will be mailed to Dave’s and my moms.
Again, inside my own mother’s card, I copied a line from Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women:
Isn’t that precious?! *tears*
Thank you Kelley!
And so you see how much sentiment can make the most special and personal gift. Not something you can find in a store! xxx
