Here are a few things I made for my mom for her birthday. Please be nice, since they were all my first attempt at each type of craft.

A Decoupage box covered in retro mom pictures. I don't know why the picture makes it look bubbled since its not. And yes I know I made the inside pictures face to different directions, I didn't realize it until it was to late to fix it.

Bottlecap Pincushions:

A Felt Needle Book I used the tute, from here: http://www.craftstylish.com/item/10227/how-to-stitch-up-a-felt-needle-book I made two copies of the larger piece of felt and stiched them together with a piece of lightweight cardboard inside to make it more sturdy. The flowers are fake flowers minus the plastic/wire parts.

Thanks for looking!

I love the box and needlebook. Especially the needlebook. It is very well made from what I see Smiley

I got the idea for the pincushions after seeing the ones on here. There is a tute on Craftstylish.

Great gifts! I like all the vintage mom pictures on the box. The pincusions are ridiculously cute and I love the way you did the flowers on the needlebook.

My mom's birthday just passed! I love your gifts. I made a scarf for her but wish I could have been more creative.

A Felt Needle Book is very romantic. I'd like to create something that by myself
