Birthday Gifts for Mamaw

Tomorrow is my mom's birthday, so we have been busy making gifts in the Mayer house!
Peyton shares my mom's love of comics and superheroes, so he made her Spiderman/Captain America coasters.

He decorated the paper and I helped him adhere them to the ceramic tiles with Modge Podge and an acrylic sealant.  I would recommend using permanent markers on your pictures, because Peyton used water-based markers and the colors bled a little.
Daulton made her a bookmark using felt and glue.   He really worked hard cutting out those little letters.

I have been wanting to try my project for a long time, but never got around to the Goodwill store for the tea cups...a Tea Cup Pin Cushion!

I used a scrap of black fabric, some bead trim, poly-fill and a glue gun to make this little cutie.

And what is a fancy pin cushion without some special pins!

Happy Birthday Mamaw!

  1. Thank you so much, great personal gifts.

  2. Your mom will treasure the coasters and the pin cushion. I love the pairing of the white cup with the black fabric, and the fun pins, too. Sharon (P.S. Thank you so much for visiting and leaving a comment!)

  3. Oops -- forgot to include the bookmark! I know she'll love that, too. I still use a bookmark my daughter made several years ago. Sharon
