Mother’s Day is less than two weeks away – have you started crafting for mom yet? You still have time to knit or crochet a fabulous gift, and we have just the patterns to help you! These handmade projects will touch mom’s heart and let her know just how much you appreciate everything she does.
Knitters, are your mom’s feet constantly cold? Keep her warm with the Scandinavian Slippers, knit using easy mitered squares. Worsted weight yarn will have these babies off your needles in no time. Pair this gift with a fancy mother-daughter pedicure to really treat mom’s feet!
Crocheters, if your mom is a jewelry aficionado, the Creative Crochet Beaded Necklace will be right up her alley. The crochet is worked around the beads, bringing two fun crafts together in one unique project. Give this gorgeous necklace to mom with a pair of sparkly matching earrings for a cute set.
The Starter Socks are another great way to show mom how much you care. These are the perfect socks for a new sock knitter, and they’re extra comfy to boot. Add a DVD of mom’s favorite movie and some popcorn, and you have a cozy night and fun quality time. For an even better value, you could knit mom several pairs of socks with the convenient Sock Pattern Collection!
Give mom the gift of organization with the crocheted Victorian Lace Card Holder. She can stash all her punch cards, gift cards, credit cards, or business cards inside to keep her purse tidy and her things handy. Pair it with a gift card to her favorite spa or restaurant for a winning combination she’ll really enjoy!
The Victorian Ruffles Pillow is a warm and comfy gift mom will love. Knit it in her favorite color and she’ll be proud to show it off to anyone who stops by for a visit. Wrap it with a book she’s been excited to read, and you have a thoughtful gift that will bring a smile to her face.
The Mountain Shadows Bracelet is another piece of pretty crocheted jewelry perfect for mom. Sparkling beads accent the edges, and a clever button makes the size easy to adjust. Take mom out for a manicure, and she’ll be showing off her hands (and wrist!) all day.
If your mom is always on-the-go, the Vacation Project Bag is a wonderful gift that will help her keep her necessities in place. If she’s also a knitter, she can stash her current work-in-progress inside, but if she’s not, this bag makes the perfect travel purse! Put some wallet-sized photos of the family inside to set this handmade gift apart and make it even more special.
Finally, the Cute and Classic Clutch is a clever gift that will make mom swoon. The sweet hearts in the crocheted motifs are a darling way to show your love. Slip a thoughtful note inside before you give it to her, and you’re sure to bring tears of joy to her eyes.
What are you making for mom this year? We’d love to hear your knit or crocheted gift ideas!
