  1. My favourite handmade mother’s day gift was a calendar my husband made with my kids hand and feet prints as the pictures for each month- he made butterflies and ghosts and trees and crabs. It was the most thought full thing and a great keepsake.

  2. Last year I made my Mom and appliqued burlap pillow for her patio set. This year I am making her an embroidered zipper pouch.

  3. A handmade tote bag would make me happy!

  4. I am following on Facebook.

  5. I’ve made a bunch of Lazy Girl Designs’ Mini Miranda Bags. They’re fun to make, and each recipient of one has been pleased!

  6. Sandie Oravec says:

    My sister and I worked together to make our mom a family quilt. Each square had the name of a family member embroidered in it. My sister embroidered all of the names and I made the quilt. She color coordinated the names so that you could see which family each person belonged to. There are six kids in our family, so this was really helpful. We left open squares so that new family members could be added as the family grew. It was a queen sized quilt, because our mom wanted it to be on her bed

  7. I made my mom a bracelet one year…which unfortunately broke!

  8. I would love a letter from my kids, telling me something about good memories growing up. 🙂 I have a friend who always asks for that from her kids, and it is a wonderful idea, so I stole it!

  9. This year I gave a purse that I made myself. It is my first one, so it didn’t look as great as I’d hoped. I’d love to receive a cleaning lady and a babysitter for a day! What a dream…

  10. I love the gifts from my children! I have a heart shaped felt pocket sewn by my daughter that is super sweet

  11. I signed up to follow by email

  16. I’m following on Pinterest and Facebook.

  17. I like to give handmade bags/purses for mother’s day.

  18. Pamela Tinkle says:

    My mom is in a wheelchair and I am always making anything for her that simplifies her daily struggles. I have made her bed rail pouches, power chair pouches and even made her a drink holder, but that didn’t hold up too well. Just having my mom on this Mother’s Day is my gift!

  19. Pamela Tinkle says:

    I have been following Around the Bobbin for quite some time now. Love all the post, the information I can always use and love seeing all the projects, makes me want to stop what I am doing and make one myself. Especially love all the totes, that is my weakness!

  20. Heather B says:

  24. Barbara says:

    I have one Mother’s Day gift in mind for a daughter-in-law who has a great camera and takes the most beautiful portraits of my grandson which I then do some nice things with in PhotoShop and frame them. It is a large camera bag for her DSLR, and I’m so excited about making it! Special people should get special things! I have a brand new daughter-in-law whom I have not decided on a gift for yet, but I will have to ask my son what I can make for her. I just sent their wedding gift that I had made.

  25. Barbara says:

  27. Now that my son’s are grown, I was surprised yesterday to find out that they are taking me to lunch on Sunday for Mother’s day and I get to pick the place. It should be fun. Looking forward to it.

    Happy Mother’s Day, Lisa

    Thanks for all your great bags.

  28. The best Mother’s Day gift I ever received was from my goddaughter and she told me that she considered me her mother and that was so unexpected. It touched me so deeply because I never really knew how much she appreciated all the times that we spent together.

  29. Last year I made my mother a paper-pieced mini quilt featuring a garden tool stand. She loved it!

  30. My favorite mother’s day gift has been the plaster hand/foot prints my daughter has given me from my grandbabies – every year-2 kiddos, now 4 and 6, and I’ve kept everyone!

  38. Great Giveaway! My mother is gone now but one of my favorite gifts that I made for her was a sewing machine cover with an applique of a sewing machine on it. This was wayyyyy back in the day and I didn’t really sew much or applique much at all. But you know, for your mom you’d do anything. 😀

  39. It’s a lot harder now that I live a state away from my mom, but I love making food to send to her. This year I had to cheat a little and sent her tea instead. She still enjoyed it!

  40. Mother’s day has already been here in Ireland we celebrate in March and I made lots of cushion covers for lots of lucky Nanas

  41. Made my mom a boxy pouch last year, with a matching flat pouch. I think she liked it…

  42. My parents are moving this year, after 26 years in the town I grew up in. So I made my mom an embroidered map of our old state and framed it. Couldn’t wait until Sunday so presented it early – tears all around!

  46. Favorite mother’s day gift – with “away” children I love photos. But in the past I’ve received many lovely useful gifts including a tote bag and scarves. My “away” children also feed my fabric habit by bringing it home from afar – how cool is that?

  48. I love receiving fabric. Thanks for the giveaway.

  56. Laura Downs says:

    My favorite Mother’s Day gift was receiving a hand-stitched and stuffed felt heart from my son when he was 5. His teacher had all her students make them in school.

  57. Shannon P says:

    We don’t do big gifts for mother’s day. My daughter made cards and I am making pin cushions in tiny flower pots.

  60. Mary M. says:

    Hi Lisa, My mom passed away of breast cancer. So I can’t not sew for her. I now sew for my adult daughter whom reminds me of my mother all the time. My mom pasted away on my daughters 17th birthday. I have planted all pink flowering bushes on one side of my yard and lavender on the other side as that is my daughters favorite. This hardware would be awesome to keeping the skill my mom taught me to make thinks for my daughter.

  62. Kristen says:

    I gave my mom a quilt for mother’s day last year.

  63. I’m not a mom, but I made my mom a custom purse for Mother’s Day last year.

  72. Gerianne says:

    I just found your site and I love it!

  73. The best gift I ever gave my mother, I think, was a handprint that I made in kindergarten when I was about four or five years old. It was in white clay and painted red around. I remember that I loved to place my hand in it again as I grew up. We’ve had it on our wall until a couple years ago, but I think it actually broke during renovation works. But I remember it fondly 🙂

    Thanks for the trip down memory lane and the chance to win this generous package!

  74. Magda R. says:

    I gave my Mum handmade cards when I was very small, later I went for experiences rather than things – as in taking over some of her chores. I don’t have children, but if I had and they volunteered to take over housework for a day I would be veeeery happy 🙂

  89. Emoree says:

    My favorite mother’s day gift was a small bouquet of flowers. My son’s hands were traced by my mom. She had them on colorful magazine paper and rolled like lilies. I’m thinking of recreating them out of fabric!

    Sadly, my mother died when I was 16, November 9, 1967; she has always been my inspiration and my love for sewing. I give or donate a lot of my sewing, my tote bags I personalize and give to cancer patients. I was unable to help my mother thru her cancer (I was not told she was dying) so for the past 15 years I’ve designed hats and bags for cancer patients that I know or friends tell me about. I would love to be the lucky recipient of purse hardware.

  115. A handmade tote is always appreciated.

She loved it and still uses it 🙂 I love my mother when I was 10 so didn’t get to do a lot of Mothers Day gifts unfortunately. Mom taught me when I was 7 and wanted me to continue if it was my dream, hence the name of my now sewing business Dreamscape Studio. I also taught my daughter to sew (now 15) and she helps me on occasion. Thank you for the awesome giveaway 🙂 Love your patterns

  140. peggy hendrick says:

    My mom made a dress for me to wear in my sister’s wedding…I don’t know how she found the strength to do it because she was suffering from heart disease and had been hospitalized just weeks before the wedding, but she was able to finish it in time doing the hemming by hand the night before the wedding.
    She passed away three weeks later… I still have the dress…it may have been Mother’s day but I was the one who received the greatest gift.

  141. I’m not a mother so I’ve never received a mother’s day gift. I usually make something for my mum for mother’s day (though ours is in March). In the past I’ve made her a sewing machine cover, embroidered pouches, glasses cases and a patchwork pig.

  142. I love to make gifts for my mom, she is after all the person who taught me to sew, and use her sewing machine when I was 8 yrs old! What a thrill that was for me (45 yrs ago). I still thank her today for teaching me to sew. Zip pouches and a tote bag are on my cutting table at this time.

  143. Amy Cavanagh says:

    I now follow your Pinterest account!! I believe I am just Amy on there!

  144. Amy Cavanagh says:

    For Mother’s Day, a travel make up bag/shower bag with plastic see-through pockets is perfect!

  145. ♥Duff says:

    I made my mother a quilt, and hey, I’d like to receive a quilt, too, someday! ♥

  147. AngieSue says:

  148. Angela Miller says:

  159. Following you on facebook

  160. Lauren aka Giddy99 says:

    My mom wanted one of those shower caps with the big edge (like a Holly Hobbie cap?), and I finally got off my keyster and made one with some cute laminated fabric! I think it looks odd, but she was thrilled. 🙂

  161. Lauren aka Giddy99 says:

    I’m following via email!

  162. Last year I made a scrapy collage of fabric on cardstock and made a card out of it for my mom.

  163. Rosemary Cumberland says:

    Any presents that I receive from my children and grandchildren on Mother’s Day are treasured. What is treasured most is their “presence”.

  164. My daughter is only 20 months old, so we have only had one mother’s day together so far and I don’t think she is quite up to making gifts just yet. At least, nothing that doesn’t involve just a scribbled crayon blob. Maybe my hubby will surprise me with some plaster hand prints or something like that.

  165. I follow on pinterest robynmiller1253

  166. I am a sucker for the handmade paper flowers that my daughter makes me from time to time. I am so sentimental I cut them out and stick them in vases. 🙂

  167. After my mom died, my dad gave me her jewelry/important stuff box. In it I found a card I’d made in early grade school with a handwritten Mother’s Day poem and a list of things I promised to do, like “read to the kids twice a week.” She saved it all those years, and I have no memory of the other gifts I gave her for Mother’s Day. I’m not a mom, so I can’t speak to what would mean the most to me, but I’d guess something like this, definitely handmade, and from the heart.

  168. I follow you on FB.

  169. My daughter took me to Things Remembered and told me to pick something! I piced a bracelet with a dangly heart that she engraved and then she engraved a silver jewelery box (small) with “You’ll always be my hero”….She’s the best!

  170. Jen Beatty says:

    A counted cross stitch I made for my mom that looked like a quilt sampler w/a special msg in the middle.

  171. RachelM says:

    I have hand knit a few items for my mom over the years

  172. I’m not sure what my mom would say was her favorite, but I’ve had fun making jewelry for her over the years. I also did a joint mother’s-father’s day family tree quilt for my parents one year.

  173. I’d like to make my mom a wallet one of these days.

  174. I love all the goofy hand made items my kids make me each year. Paintings of our family are always the most fun!

  175. I’ve never done a handmade Mother’s Day. The standard gift has always been a bag of M&Ms and a book, lol. Thanks for the chance to win!

  176. I follow you on FB!

    oh my, my kiddos have made me many wonderful things over the years for mothers day. and I have loved them all dearly. but the best of all is when on mothers day we would go out as a family and pick plants and flowers for around the house and garden. the kids loved it as much as I did, for we let them help pick out plants, figure the best place to put them and them plant them in the ground. and then I had them help me water them so they could see them grow and feel the accomplishment of caring for these wonderful plants.
