Sew Gifts for Mom’s Home

A mother’s love is central to the home.

Gardening Tool Belt

Keep the trowel/secateurs/string at hand when busy in the garden. It’s attached to an existing belt to keep it secure while giving Mom the freedom to position the pockets where they hang comfortably.

Fabric Napkins

So much more elegant than paper serviettes, these will be a welcome addition to Mom’s dining table. The key to precise corners is frequent use of your iron or steam press.


Sew Self Care Gifts 

Mothers tend to put everyone else’s needs ahead of their own. Show Mom how much you love her by turning the table with these ideas.

Hand Sanitiser Holder

No more fumbling around in the bottom of Mom’s bag with this holder that clips to her bag or belt hoop.
