Iron Craft challenged us to create a stitched project. I chose to stitch up a little gift for my mom for Mother's Day! I know Mother's Day was two weeks ago, but I didn't see my mom until this past weekend so we had a late Mother's Day. My mom loves old fashioned, floral things, so I thought a little gift set would be perfect for her.
I started with some fabric scraps that I got from my recent craft supply swap. I started by stitching a heart onto one of the pieces. I tried to make it look "scribbly."
Next, I stitched along the outside leaving a bit open. I turned it inside out and filled it with lavender. I then stitched along the outside edge one more time. This was challenging because the lavender kept getting in the way; I won't do it this way again :)
Next, I filled a mason jar with some bath salts (store bought) and added a piece of fabric to the top. Finally, I added a label to the jar.
That's it! This was a quick, easy project but turned out quite cute. I think my mom really liked it :)
