I have a few turtlenecks that are made of beautiful fabrics, but I can’t stand the high, tight neckline. Time for another DIY recycle project to makeover this sweater! The look of see through fabric, embroidered, and embellished tulle are so trendy right now...
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)
