Fat Quarter Projects; Mothers Day Gift Ideas

With Mother’s Day just around the corner – 27th March in the UK – I thought I’d put together a little round up of gift ideas to make with your stash of fat quarters from your SewHayleyJane boxes. These quick and simple projects won’t take much more than an hour to whip up and are beautiful as well as practical.

If you looking to gift something to a yoga or pilates enthusiast then a cute bag to fit their yoga mat is the perfect thing. Complete with a drawstring closure and handle they’ll be the envy of their class!

I can personally attest to how good these are, reusable face wipes made with the softest bamboo towelling which washes up really well. A sweet little pouch in a co-ordinating fabric to keep them all safely tucked inside.

For the camping and picnic enthusiast this handy cutlery roll will keep all the knives and forks safely in one place. This would also make a great make up brush holder or as a store pens and pencils.

Who doesn’t love a tote bag? In our bid to reduce plastic waste you can never have enough tote bags so try out this tutorial for a reversible bag complete with pockets for storing all the essentials and easily customised with a cute label such as the ones by Little Rosy Cheeks.

Mothers day this year coincides with the clocks going forward – not sure who planned that but it does mean the days are getting longer and we can start to look forward to al fresco dining. So why not whip up a garden table lunch set ready for those warmer days.

Finally if you have someone in your life who loves a houseplant then these gorgeous fabric plant pots might be just the thing to display them in style and can be made to fit all size pots.
