My Mum doesn’t like receiving big, fancy, or expensive presents, for any occasion. We’re actually not allowed to give her anything but a card for her birthdays. But I very much enjoy giving presents to people, especially when I just know they’re going to love it. So I have to get creative (literally) when it comes to Mum.
I always make her card myself so even without a gift, I’ve spent time and effort on something special. This year I went for a super cute catty card designed by Eleonora of Coastal Crochet.
I don’t know why my camera picked up those glue lines, they weren’t visible in real life…
The original design is in very bright hot colours, but blue is Mum’s favourite colour and forget-me-nots are a reminder of Grandma (her mum) so I went with that instead. I also had a much smaller card base, or maybe much thicker yarn, so I had to turn the card landscape and just use a few flowers.
I still like it though.
I hope all the mums out there had a happy Mothers Day!
