Tried of gifting Mom with the same thing year after year? Why not try something new? This super simple "craft"y gift makes a memorable, touching, and unique memento for Mom on Mother's Day.
Students will create a quilt for Mom on her special day. They will complete each square of the quilt by filling in information about the significant female adult in their life that is "sew" special to them. Each square has a sewing themed activity. Variations for Mom include Mum, Grandma, Aunt, and a blank version.
This gift craftivity requires very little prep and can be completed by students in a timely manner. Printables can be run on different colored papers so students can mix and match the colors of their quilt squares. They can also be run on white paper, and students can decorate the squares and color the pictures. If desired, a border can be added around the outside edges of the quilt. Students can decorate their borders by creating patterns on them. The borders on the example are 1/2" all the way around. A page of buttons and snaps has been provided as well to help decorate the quilt or real buttons can be used if available.
Quilt squares read as follows:
Mom, You are "sew" special
A "snap"shot of you (draw a picture of Mom)
You are as "cute as a button" (write similes about Mom)
Three chores you won't have to "needle" me to do for you (list 3 things to do for Mom)
I've "pin"ned a list of words to describe you! (list describing words for Mom)
Stitches in time...memories of you (write memories of Mom)
You are a "cut" above the rest (My mom is...has...can)
This quilt was hand stitched with love to comfort you and warm your heart.
(Please note that words on the quilt squares are not in quotes but only done so here to emphasize the sewing theme.)
