9 Mother's Day Gifts She Will Love!

Image
Mother's day is quickly approaching and as a Mom who knows how hard it can be find the perfect gifts for Father's Day, I thought I'd help some of you out.  I've put together a list of gifts that I have found on Etsy, with various price ranges, that I believe any mom would love.  I know I'd love to get any of these items (hint hint to the husband...).  I have listed them in no particular order, so enjoy!  
**One thing to note:  When I emailed all these sellers about permission to use their photos, they all responded within a few hours!!! Great customer service! **

9 Mother's Day Crochet Ideas

Image
It is now May and Mother's day it just a couple of weeks away.  Have no fear though!  I've found the perfect projects for you to make your Mom!  Being a mom myself, homemade gifts from your babies, no matter how old, are always okay in my book.  It shows that you are actually taking the time to think about her, and not just buying whatever you see on the store shelves.  It is made with love.  Most of these do not take too long so you still have plenty of time!

Free Crochet Pattern for the "F-Bomb"

Image
I have seen pictures of these F-Bombs floating around for a little while now.  I've really wanted to make them, but without an actual reason, my other priorities took precedent.  Well, I finally had someone order some of them, because, well, they are AWESOME!  I was so excited to get started, but as usual, when searching for patterns, I couldn't find one that I loved.  So in true "The Crocheting Mom" fashion, I decided to make my own!



For this pattern I like to do the F first, so that when I get to towards the top of the bomb, I can have it ready to sew one.
