Let Mom Relax!
Stitch a simple but pretty robe for mom to wear around the house with this free printable pattern and tutorial from Erin at sewbon.
While you’re stitching a soft, summery robe for mom, use some of the same fabric to sew a pair of comfy fabric slippers with this free printable pattern and tutorial from Jaime at Pretty Prudent. Here’s a hint for making the pattern fit mom—snag a pair of flipflops or flats that fit mom perfectly to trace off the right size for her feet.
Let mom get a good night’s sleep with this Sleep Mask by Stacy right here at WeAllSew. Here’s a tip: before stitching the mask closed, fill with plain white rice to make this an optional heat/cool mask.
