Free Pattern Friday: Mother’s Day Gifts
As moms, we treasure every handmade gift. But, while finger-painted hands and macaroni necklaces are nice, we wouldn’t mind being treated to something with a bit more personal style. Craftsy is here to help spur inspiration! With a whole host of fabulous free patterns, you’re sure to find the perfect Mother’s Day gift, whether it’s a gift you’ll make for someone else or a helpful nudge in the right direction to your kids. So go ahead, pick your favorite — let’s celebrate all the amazing women and mothers in our lives!
This lovely skinny runner is the perfect table topper decor—and you can even customize it based on your favorite lady’s preferences! This simple design only requires knowledge of how to sew a ¼” seam, so it’s a great project for novice quilters. Plus, this pattern from Craftsy member Connie Campbell was smartly made for easy adjustment; lengthen or shorten it as you please!
The saying goes that cleanliness is next to godliness, so what better gift for mom than that of a clean sewing room? This scrap bucket pattern from Craftsy member The Sewing Loft is a great way to get organized in style. Stitch this bag up and put the kids to work organizing your favorite lady’s scraps, fabrics, threads and supplies.
Treat yourself to a gift with this romantic cowl in honor of Mother’s Day. Craftsy member TheSamplerGirl created this as the perfect movie night knitting project. Inspired by her favorite Jane Austin chick flicks, like Pride & Prejudice and Mansfield Park, this pattern was made to be paired with a girly flick and bowl of popcorn!
Most women love jewelry, and this sweet heart-shaped ring pattern from Craftsy member Copa Aingeal is no exception! Using a simple wire-wrap design with accent beads, this pattern can be dressed up with fancy wire and gemstone beads or kept simple with craft wire and seed beads. Either way, you’re sure to end up with a perfectly pretty gift to show how much you care!
We love this crochet pattern from Craftsy member TampaBayCrochet because it doubles as wrapping and a gift! With a few stitches, you can create an adorable little card holder, perfect for securing a gift card to her favorite store or coffee shop. Then she’ll have a pretty little credit card sleeve for stashing in her purse or clutch long after Mother’s Day has passed!
This embroidered envelope from Craftsy member sewuseful1352718 is the perfect memento. Drawing inspiration from a heart-felt handwritten letter, this fabric envelope can hold a personal poem, letter or card—or can simply be a gift in and of itself. It’s sure to be a pleasure to make, give and receive.
Forget store-bought cards, this handmade Mother’s Day card from Craftsy member ColoradoStitch is a simple and sweet way to show you really care. With peachy pink flowers and soft green leaves, the end result is a card lovely enough to be filled with all your thoughts about why you love her!
