Mother’s Day Sewing Projects

Mother’s Day is coming up in Australia and the US on May 10 so I thought I’d share some great projects that would make a lovely gift for your Mum.

Maybe you don’t have time to sew something? If not, check out this Mother’s Day gift guide I put together last year!

A new bag is a practical gift and this one is an easy sew.


Pattern and fabric details are here.

You could make your Mum a new sewing machine cover.


Find my tutorial here, and make one for your machine too while you are at it!

A zip pouch is a simple and quick gift – fill it with some goodies that you know your Mum would love – chocolates, a new lipstick, a packet of her favourite tea or coffee.

This one is a very quick sew – embroidery hoop pocket storage. You could use this for anything – sewing items, stationery, art tools, knitting and crochet hooks and needles, small cooking utensils.

Check out my embroidery hoop tutorial here.

Maybe a cushion for your Mum?

All the details on this one are here. It’s so pretty and a fantastic scrap buster.

Nothing here that’s quite right? Perhaps check out my Sewing Projects & Tutorials Pinterest board – I’m forever pinning fun looking sewing projects that I’d love to try!

  1. Congrats, Ros, on migrating the site to WordPress. Looking good!!! Thought you must have finished when double posts appeared in my RSS reader. I’ve been tempted to change to WP. One day I’ll ask you specifics as to how you found the process, but for now, life’s a bit too busy. Again, kudos on the new site.

    1. Thanks Pam! I’ve been so happy with how the move has gone – Sarah from Spunmonkey did it for me and she is wonderful!

  2. Oooh, LA de da! Aren’t you clever. Very nice ros. You’ll have to do a tutorial on how to go from blogger to WordPress for a novice like me. Love the round up too. Happy mothers day lovey xx

    1. Ha no such expertise here Anne – I outsourced! Sarah from Spunmonkey did the work for me and she was fantastic. Happy Mother’s Day to you too! xx

  3. I think I might just sew for myself. I already bought my mum a very practical gift as they are about to go travelling so don’t have much space. Yeah I might just sew for me!! Thanks for the suggestions.

    1. I’m keen to sew for myself too actually! I’ve got a bunch of stuff on my to do list and I can’t wait to get into it!
