Gift idea 1: Make slippers yourself
Sewing warm slippers yourself is an easy task. In winter or on the cool spring days, your mother needs something cozy for her feet. Do not you mean it? Then give heat to the mum by making the slippers themselves. All you need is some creativity and the following materials:
For the upper shoe:
Leather (sturdy, not too thick piece) – approx. 0.5 x 1 m in size;
For the liner:
Equally large pulp (imitation fur or genuine lambskin);
Scissors or utility knife (for real lambskin);
Newsprint for the pattern;
Gifts for Mother’s Day: Make beautiful slippers yourself!
First make a pattern! Put one foot on the newspaper! Draw the outline generously! Hold the pin upright! Round off the edges! Transfer the information for the top of the shoe to the newsprint! Cut out cutting pattern!
Cut fabric for slippers! Cut each pattern 2 times per fabric! Cut parts for the upper shoe slightly larger! The liner must be a little smaller!
Approximately 1 cm to calculate seam allowance! Cut now! Pull the fur apart!
Start sewing! First sew the fur shoe! Sew the top to the sole, right to the right! Then sew the opening! On the inside leave a 6 cm long slit open! Sew open edge together! Sew opening on the top part! Now sew the upper shoe! Sew the top to the sole (as with the liner)! Cut seam allowances and glue them in the upper part!
Put upper shoe right on the right in the inner shoe!
Slippers over the slot in the inner shoe turn!
Liner stuck in the upper shoe!
Fix the seams of the upper and inner shoe to the heels! Use a tearproof thread! 1-2 stitches by hand!
Finished are the warm slippers!
That is how it goes!
Gift Idea 2: make garden apron yourself!
Grandma is very happy if you give her a practical apron! Do you always have gloves, garden tools and seeds with you? A really great idea for Mother’s Day gifts, right? You need:
3.5 meters webbing Plain;
0.6 meters of canvas;
0.6 meters of water-repellent outer fabric;
Gifts for Mother’s Day: practical apron!
Cut out a 70 x 60 cm rectangle from the water repellent fabric and the canvas! You will need two 1.3 m long pieces and a 0.9 m long piece from the webbing!
Sew on the longer pieces of the webbing at the short edge of the rectangle out of the canvas at a distance of 1.5 cm to the upper edge on the right and left! Gently close seam! Twist ends of the webbing twice and stitch so that they can not fray!
Webbing with dimensions 0.9 m serves as a decorative element and practical helper! Sew up the webbing with a narrow edge parallel to the upper edge of the rectangle made of canvas and form a few loops on one side! Secure with quilting seams!
Place the water-repellent fabric right on the right side of the canvas! Then sew the two fabrics together at the outer edges with 1.5 cm seam allowance! Start and end of the seam lock!
On one of the short sides leave a 5 cm long opening to turn! Cut seam allowances at the corners! Turn the material rectangle through the turning opening! Iron edges smoothly!
Fold lower long edge 20 cm so that it forms a bag! Tap along the outside edges! Sew pocket parts perpendicular to the lower edge!
