Mother’s Day and Teacher Appreciation Idea

Here is a great Mother’s Day and Teacher Appreciation Idea!
Finding a gift for my Mother-in-law is kind of tricky.  We’ve already given her all the usual gifts of flowers, books, gift card, etc…  So, I’m always on the lookout for something to give her.  Luckily, she loves homemade gifts.  As soon as I saw this post on Helping Little Hands about Faux Embroidery, I knew that was what I needed to make for Mother’s Day this year.

I purchased the pattern from Twin Stitchers.  She is having a deal this month that if you spend over $10.00, you will get 50% off your entire order!  So my “Our Family Tree” E-pattern was only $6.50!!  Such a deal!    Once I started coloring, I just couldn’t stop.  It was so fast, easy, and fun!

While I colored, my daughter watched.  She thought it looked so fun, she kept asking if she could color some.  I was particular about my gift, so I told her we could make another one for her to color.  We decided it would be fun to make one of her school class to give to her teacher.  So, we did our best to fit the whole class on to the tree.  I just love how it turned out.

Kaylee is so excited to color it for her teacher.  Unfortunately, she has a lot of homework to get done first.  I’m hoping this will be some good motivation to get her to move a little quicker.

A few notes:
– These are 14 X 18 inch frames.  The brown one was $20 from Target and the black one was $10 (50% off) from Hobby Lobby.
–  On the Class Tree, I made the tree slightly bigger on the right hand side so that we could fit more kids on it.
– The link to Helping Little Hands is a tutorial with a lot of helpful information.  She suggests what kind of pen and crayons to use and tips to make it easier.

    Such a good idea! I love it, it’s darling! The teacher will love hers too, I’m sure.

    Wow! That’s a different idea. They look great. I bet the teacher has never got anything like that before! Great job!

    what paper did you use?? Do I have to buy it twice to do it twice?

    Emily, The post on Helping Little Hands is a tutorial that is very helpful. You trace the pattern onto Muslin (cheap usually cream fabric). Once you own the pattern you can use it as many times as you want. It’s like owning a quilt pattern. She e-mails you the pattern, you print if off, use it, and put it in your pattern file.

    Holly so you did use the Muslin like she did in her tutorial? Yours looked like paper and I couldn’t tell. I have already ordered my pattern and I am so excited to try this. SO cute! Thanks for sharing!
