Mother's Day gift idea

Stuck for something to give your mum on Mother's Day? Why not go the handmade route and make her a cute holder for her mobile phone? 



My step-by-step tutorial for making one is this month's featured tutorial on the Elephant in my Handbag blog. It's a nice, straight forward project to make and a great way of showcasing two contrasting fabrics. I used a pretty floral with a blue star fabric for my tutorial, but I think it would work well with one of the gorgeous Suffolk Garden flower prints too.


Or maybe your mum has similar taste to me and nothing makes her happier than a fruit print?! Given the choice I'd go for the green pear print every time!  


If you'd like a few more ideas for handmade Mother's Day gifts, have a look at my tutorials page. Handmade Lavender Bags always seems to be a big hit with mums and they're sooo easy to make! 


Happy crafting! x

  2. I'd be tempted to put some velcro on the outside of that case and some velcro on all my mum's clothing to make her carry the blummin' phone with her instead of leaving it on the table!

    1. Haha! My mum loves these holders and has a few of them: one for her phone, one for her glasses. She still doesn't know how to text though! x

  5. Lovely fabrics. I really look forward to making my mum's mothers day gift, its a special occasion for her to allow herself to be the one who gets the attention for a day. Making her a shirt.

  6. I've made mum the reversible tote in your Tutorials section. 'Guess how much I love you' fabric with more tasteful cream stripe inside! It's from her toddler grandson and me and will love it!
