Hands to Sleep on...

Ok, I don’t know about you but I have had very little time this week to think about what Im going to do about Mothers Day for my sweet Mother and Mother-in-law! Procrastinator I know... Im so bad but I had no idea what I was going to do. Then I stumbled upon From an Igloo! I said, “Hey I can do that!” So I dragged my boys to the store, grabbed some fabric and had an epiphany! My husband said to me “why don’t you just put them on a pillowcase.” Genius! Why didn’t I think of that! Easy and the pillow is already made for me.... soooooo.... two pillowcases later....



Now, the zig zag stitch is intimidating at first! Believe me I was scared! BUT, it really is quite forgiving once you get the hang of it! I suggest that you practice first! To help stay on your lines you can lift up your foot/needle and place the fabric where you want the needle to go. As long as you go slow and watch where the needle is going, you should be fine and come out with a cute stitch! The tips of the fingers were a little hard at first but I repeat, GO SLOW...

My grandma has an embroidery machine... so I think Im going to pay her a visit to do names today! You could also cut out names and repeat steps just like you did with the hands. Anywho, have fun and HAPPY MOTHERS DAY MOM!!!!!

  2. Hi! Love your site! Just wanted to let you know that I featured you on my DIY Mother’s Day gift post.

    I host a MckLinky party called Tot Tuesdays every week where people come link up their recipes, crafts and activities for their toddlers. I am also hosting Yummy Mummy Week which starts this Sunday. I hope you will join me for 8 days of featured mom bloggers sharing inspiration and tips on motherhood as well as 8 giveaways which are perfect gifts for mom. There will also be a Blog Hop where moms can share their stories, photos and “mommyfessions” about motherhood and how their bodies have changed. I’d love it if you would come stop by!
