Easy Sewing Project for Mother’s Day or Any Special Day ♥

I was recently going through memory boxes and came across letters from a few people so dear to my heart that have since passed away.  This made me think, I hardly write letters anymore!  An email, text, and the occasional phone call – that’s the trend these days.  With Mother’s Day coming up I thought this would be a perfect time to get the pen out.  Even better, embroider a custom envelope Mom can keep the letters in ?

Each year I try to come up with something unique and personal to send my Mom on Mother’s Day.  She love’s handwritten letters, so why not add a custom monogrammed envelope that she can keep the letters or use for something else – maybe to hold makeup or coupons.  Something small she can carry that will remind her how special she is to all of us kids ♥

This project is very easy and only takes about 30 minutes (even faster if you are on the Brother 10-needle)

Supplies:

Happy Mother’s Day ♥
