This hip and funky makeup bag makes a perfect homemade gift or any cool mom.  A pretty fabric matched with a bright button makes for a lovely present that  mother can truly use. A great gift for Mother’s Day. Be sure to visit our other great Mother’s Day fun  including crafts to  make, cards for  mom and recipes to  spoil her withon Mother’s Day!

What you’ll need:

  • Sturdy fabric with pretty pattern, 14” x 8”
  • Colorful button to match fabric
  • Thread to match fabric
  • Scissors
  • Needle or sewing machine
  • Permanent fabric glue

How to make it:

  1. Cut fabric into two pieces, 9” x 8” and 5” x 8”.
  2. Lay 9” piece of fabric right side up on table. Lay 5” piece of fabric right  side down on top of larger piece of fabric. Line up bottom to bottom (8” side)  on one end and glue the edges together (right sides together) with a thin strip  of glue.
  3. Now that the 8″ ends are glued together, flip the fabric over so the wrong  sides are facing up. For the non-glued 8″ ends, fold the edge of the fabric over  so that 1/2inches or less of the right side of the fabric is folded over the  wrong side of the fabric. Glue on the inside of the fold to create finished  edges.
  4. With wrong sides still facing up, glue a seam along both long sides. All  edges should now have seams.
  5. With fabric laying wrong side up, take smaller end (5” x 8”) and fold it up  and glue the wrong sides of the smaller and larger pieces together to complete  the formation of the bag.
  6. Fold long top flap (9” x 8”) down until it meets the top of the bag, glue  the complete inside the flap so wrong sides are stuck together.
  7. Use scissors to cut a button hole in the center of the flap.
  8. Fold flap over the bag and use a pen or pencil to make a dot through the  hole and onto the bag fabric for placement of the button.
  9. Sew button securely onto front of bag.
  10. Sew edges of button hole to keep them from fraying.
  11. Close bag and secure button through hole.

Tips:

  • Be sure to choose a sturdy fabric. It should feel fairly stiff and hold its  shape.
  • Instead of a button you may choose a fastener, available at discount  department or fabric stores. For kids who are not comfortable using a needle and  thread, you can have them glue the button on the outside for decoration, but use  a piece of Velcro on the inside for the closure.
  • Some permanent fabric glues are messy and take a long time to dry. Ask your  local fabric store about the different types available.

  • Pot of Flower Pens
    mother's day craft ideasCraft a gift that everyone will love! This pot of   flower pens would make a great gift for Mother’s   day and is fun to craft with our easy   instructions.  Make a bunch of flower pens and put them in a   basket to give out as party or shower favors or   to sell at a local fundraiser.
    1. Cut a piece of floral foam to fit inside your pot   and place it in the pot.  We used a clay pot but feel free to substitute   any other type of pot that appeals to you.
    2. Squirt some tacky glue on top of the floral foam   and cover it with the artificial grass.  Your pot is now complete.    Place it aside while you make the flower pens.
    3. It is important that you use the pens that   are flat on top – NOT the click type pens.    This type of pen has a black or blue button on   one end.  Discard the cap that came on the   pen.
    4. Using a hand drill* make a hole in the   plastic button on the end of each pen.  If   you don’t have a hand drill find something else   to make a hole in the end of the pen or try to   pop the button off the end.  This step   should be completed by an adult.
    5. Wrap the floral tape around the stick of   the pen stopping just as you get to the black or   blue piece at the point of the pen.  When   using floral tape, stretch it as you wrap.
    6. For each pen, pull one flower off of a   bunch of flowers and stick it in the hole you   made at the top of the pen.  If the hole is   too small, stick a metal object such as an awl   or pick in the end and wiggle it to stretch the   hole out.  If the flower is too loose in   the hole, glue it in place.
    7. Poke the flower pens into the floral foam   in the pot and your Pot of Flower Pens is   now complete.

    Idea:  Fill a   glass container or pot with brown kidney   beans or decorative stones and stick then   pens into them.
