Sewing for my Mama

Here's a little sewing I did for my mama for Mother's Day.....

The first thing I made was a fabric journal cover.  This cover was made to fit just a standard sized memo book you can buy at the store.  (I wanted to make it fit something standard and easy to come by so you could replace the journal easily when the paper was used up.)

I used a natural colored linen for the main fabric.  Then I quilted a little "strip" together out of some pretty scrap fabrics I had in my stash.  I then embroidered it with a retro looking kitty and added her name. 

The inside of the journal is lined in one of my favorite Heather Bailey fabrics.  (It is called "Church Flowers" and it is from her nicey jane collection.)  I also added a ribbon bookmark just because.

I had some extra fabric, so I also made a simple fabric bookmark that was personalized for her.

Finally, I stitched up some flour sack towels and embroidered some cute, colorful animal sayings on them.

Well, that's all folks!  Thanks so much for looking!
