Mother’s Day is not too far away so now is the time to start planning some gift projects for the Mothers, Grandmothers, or other special women in your life. Nothing means more to a mother than putting some effort into creating a one of a kind gift just for them. I loved the sweet gifts and cards that my children made for me when they were in primary school – I still have most of them as sweet reminders of their childhood. Many schools have Mother’s Day craft stalls and are always looking for items to sell. So if you need to make multiple items for a craft stall, check out these gifts to sew.
I hope you find some inspiration from these projects of easy gifts to sew- most are fairly quick to make and are suitable for beginner to intermediate sewers.

Mother’s who love to cook and bake, will appreciate a pretty little pot holder.
Add a fabric border and a crochet edging to a plain guest towel. Partner it with some body products for a sweet gift.
Sew a wheat and lavender bag and make a pretty Eiffel Tower cover for it. This is a lovely gift to keep Mum warm in winter and to soothe aches and pains.
Cover a plain coat hanger with pretty fabric and trims so Mum has a special hanger to use with her favourite outfit.
Make a lovely pillowcase which features some hand sewn hexies. This is a great way to use special fabric scraps. Find lots of pretty floral fabrics for a sweet pillowcase.
A bath mitt featuring an Eiffel Tower appliqué, is a fun gift. Add some special soap/bath gel and Mum can have a relaxing bubble bath.
Mums who love to knit and crochet will love a project pouch for taking projects on the go. It features a handy tape measure sewn into the lining.
Make a drawstring pyjama bag and fill it with some new pyjamas or lounge pants. The bag is great when travelling to keep your pyjamas separate from your other clothing.
Emergency Pouch is the perfect place to store some emergency first aid supplies (or credit card) in your hand bag.
Make a Zakka style facewasher from a plain white face washer and some cotton/linen fabric. Team it with some body products for a practical gift.
