Today's suggestion for my Mother's Day Gift idea series is an old one...creating themed gift baskets. I love putting together pretty baskets of fun little odds and ends. Such fun to explore and discover each little goodie. The one below is a crafter/seamstress's basket. Lots of fun pretties. There are...(I apologize for the poor photos. I took this at night and there was no natural lighting available).
Handmade buttons covered with vintage linens and fragments of an antique silk kimono. Strung onto a hand-crafted card with a cute kitty tag.
Perle cotton for hand-embroidery, strung onto hand-crafted cardboard spools made from pre-cut tags, vintage gift wrap, vintage greeting card cut-outs and then strung onto wire.
Hand-painted vintage seam binding which I bought from Pink Rose Pastries. She has the most adorable stuff ever!
Ribbons and trims wrapped onto glitter-crusted vintage clothespins
There are also handcrafted gift tags, tiny tassels, vintage laces and trims, a large albino silk peacock (out of this world!) silk flowers, snowflake crochet kits, cards hand-crafted from vintage papers, and pink vintage bump chenille wire. All on a bed of hand-shredded vintage music.
Here are theme ideas for your own basket:
