This is a little something I finished off before we went away.
I decided to make our Mother’s day cards this year, starting off with just a simple stitched ‘Mum’, then embellishing with a little extra. For one, I took inspiration from an old blackwork pattern in an issue of CrossStitcher magazine:
To make it into a card I backed it with some iron on interfacing to help secure the stitches on the reverse:
Then I padded the back with a bit of fleece, then mounted it with some glue dots into a card with a circular window:
Cute yeah? And pretty quick to stitch.
For the other I put a large flowery design in the background, and mounted it in a similar way:
Happy Mother’s day Mothers!
