last minute gifts to sew for MOM in a few hours or less!

Mother's day is this Sunday and if you're anything like me, you're last-minute panicking about what to get/make for the moms in your life. I'm lucky enough to have 3 moms to celebrate on Mother's Day; my mom, my step mom and my partner's mom. They're all so wonderful, but also sooooo different which means I need a unique gift for each of them, which also means 3 times the panic!
