Mother's Day with Paper Crafter's Corner

Hello Bloglanders

Today I'm sharing my 2015 Mother's Day project.  YES, I'm sure you're totally bored with me telling you how sick my mum is. Let me give you the good news ................................ she is up and about and enjoying life to the fullest at the moment. Most probably this would be her last Mother's Day but I'm SO glad she got some life quality back that I'm just not going to think about the rest.

As my mum used to make all our clothes (and her own), I couldn't resist this 3D sewing box from  the Silhouette store. Inside are little spools for her latest embroidery project - a picture of the church in our home town, Vredendal.

I discovered WONDERFUL self adhesive, printable fabric sheets which dissolves in water once you've done your part. First for me and it works like a charm!

The little box was easy to make and I love how it turned out. If you want to watch Lori Whitlock's video on how to make the 3D Sewing machine box, you can get it here. You will see that I didn't use the cardstock spool as I had this pretty wooden one from The Twinery.

What inspired me???? You wouldn't believe me - this picture:

It's from Paper Crafter's Corner Magazine Monday challenge. I know!!! My project is nothing like the picture but that's me. I thought about everything my mum did for me - like making all my clothes, feeding us (and she HATES cooking), driving us to school, sport and friends. As I wanted to thank her with something she can actually use and enjoy at this point in her life, I came up with a "box" and an embroidery project and there you have it!

Most probably I'll end up making a whole goodie box for Mother's Day. Therefor, watch this space as I'll be back with an update.

That's it!! I'm off to get some office work done. Have a Thunderous Thursday and thanks for visiting my blog today.

  1. Very, very cool, Hazel! It's wonderful how the inspiration magazine can take us in so many different directions! I would never have guess the 3D sewing machine was actually a box! Great job!
