a homemade gift
for the past few years I've done non physical gifts for my family, giving gift certificates for restaurants or local experiences instead. this year i did that as well as a few homemade things.
today i am going to show what i made for my very favorite person: my own mama.
first i made her a tobacco flower and vanilla candle.
complete with a handmade label:
since she is my mother I decided to give her something from my favorite fabric, this branch print quilting cotton.
well once i convinced fitz to part with it.
i made her something every hostess always needs more of: napkins.
whenever I make napkins I add a piece of twill tape or grosgrain ribbon to hang it by. I got this grosgrain from gather here a few years back. at half a yard (18 inches) it was too short for so many projects, but just right for six napkins.
one day soon I'll share a tutorial for the mitered corners.
happy holidays mom!
