I have been wondering what to make with my stack of Suffolk Puffs.
And, with Mother’s Day just around the corner, I really wanted to use them in a pretty way to make a gift for my Mum. I had already purchased some delightful novelty pins from Teeny Tiny Vintage (trust me, her pins are even more gorgeous in real life!), but I wanted to give my Mum something else that I had made with my own two hands.
So …… I began my usual ritual of ransacking my sewing room, trying to find inspiration from my stash of pretty fabrics, buttons, ribbons, lace and the like.
For a while, I drew a blank, but then ‘it’ happened. You know that moment when you get a picture in your head of ‘it’ – the thing you want to make – and suddenly you become even more frantic in your search for that ‘perfect piece of fabric’. “I’ll know it when I see it” says the voice in your head and, sure enough, the exact fabric you need turns up… eventually.
Amidst the mess that was once my tidy sewing room, I have managed to sew a cute wee zipper pouch and two lavender scented sachets. All in all, I’m really happy with my efforts. All that’s left for me to do is to package it all up in a pretty ribbon, ready for Mother’s Day (after I’ve put my sewing room back together that is :))
Happy Mother’s Day everyone! x
