What I made my mother for Mother's Day:

First, a garden organizer. This was much more time-consuming and difficult than I imagined it would be, but I do like the end result!!!

It's supposed to be used with a 5-gallon bucket, but since I didn't have one, it's being modeled by my (clean!) trash can!

Back:


Inside:

I really love that corn fabric! So many pleats! Three different techniques!!!!! So many pieces! I'm glad she likes it. Smiley

Also, I made her some sunflower bags. Mom uses them to cover the sunflowers so they can dry without the birds getting the seeds. She hangs the dried sunflower heads out for the birds to eat in the winter.



I stamped the design on the bags using a stamp I made out of foam sheets and cardboard:


Everything boxed up! (She likes cigar boxes, and I have a GREAT source!!!)

Wow, that is simply the loveliest bucket organizer I have EVER seen!  I like the sunflower netting too - very clever.

haha! She loved everything, including the cigar boxes. She liked the extra details on the sunflower bags, and she doesn't want to use the organizer because it will get dirty! I told her that after all the work I put into it, she better use it!!! lol She said, "You constantly amaze me. You should open a shop and teach lessons!"

So glad she liked everything!
