Last minute Mother's Day gifts



There is still time to make a special gift for your mother. Here are 2 quick gifts that any mom would love.

Capiz Shell Necklace

Have you seen the Capiz Shell pendant lights or outdoor wind chimes?  They have a soft glow and pretty sound and always remind me of a beautiful day at the beach.  This pendant is crocheted around a large capiz shell bead (that I found at Hobby Lobby) with size 10 crochet cotton thread. The pattern for this design can be found in one of Annie's special issues - Creative Crochet in a Day - which is on newsstands now or can be purchased as an instant digital download here.



 
Another quick project idea for mom can be found in this same magazine -
 Primrose Jar Wrap.

I found these great mason jar glasses at Hobby Lobby recently.  The decorative possibilities are endless with this clear blank canvas!  For this project I used Nazli Gelin's Size 10 Egyptian cotton crochet thread and a simple flower motif.  Your mom could use this every day and be reminded of how much you appreciate and love her.
