Mum’s Birthday Pressies

Mum loves fuschias & I’d had this pattern tucked away for years. I wasn’t sure what to use it on, but as I’d already made Mum a couple of wall hangings,  I decided to make a cushion.

I’d bought the fabrics a couple of years ago with Mum in mind so I finally had a project for them.

I traced the pattern then chose crayons to match the fabrics.

I think she’ll like it.

Mum also likes dolls so I made this one.

Now it’s time to start thinking about making Christmas pressies.

The pillow is very pretty! I've never tried coloring with crayons, only with pencils. Your mum will love it, and the doll too.

Thanks Linda, Mum loved her pressies & they even arrived on her birthday. She said the cushion is too good to be leaned on so she's put it on her bed.
