Not every Mum likes chocolates. Flowers are lovely but I hate the hype that Valentines Day and Mothering Sunday brings. So I revisited a project I enjoyed a little while ago. It could make a present a little special particularly if your Mum is a bit Sporty.
A bouquet of socks.
The blogger App I have chooses to post pictures in the order it wants which makes tutorials very tricky but I am sure you you will get the idea.
Choose some pretty socks. Roll them from the toe and make a little bud shape. It is quite fun poking and pulling it until you get a nice rosebud shape. Pop a little elastic band around the bud and tuck a bamboo kebab skewer under the elastic band. Make as many buds as you like and arrange in a bouquet . I had some artificial flowers here in Spain which I added but I think it would look even prettier with fresh greenery.
Wrap in paper and cellophane and finish with a bow and a little heart. Perhaps your Mum would love it.
