I think (cross-fingers) that ye old U.S.P.S. has delivered our Mother's Day goodies by now, so I don't feel too bad sharing them early. They're tote bags that we painted up with flowers. The petals/hands are the Kid's; the leafy footprints belong to Little Miss.
Inspiration came from here, but I added the footprint leaves so that all members of the family could participate. The Kid picked out the colors, I painted appendages, Sweet Husband helped keep said appendages from touching everything but the bags, and Little Miss giggled.
We've been picking green paint out of her toes all week.
As appealing as that last part sounds, if you're still scratching your head for Mother's Day this is a quick project, with the added bonus that it's always sweet to look back and see how those hands and feet have grown.
If you do it, use craft paint that's meant to be used on fabric, and be sure to slip a paper sack (folded flat) inside the bag to keep the paint from bleeding through to the back of the bag. Also, once the paint is dry, it doesn't hurt to run a hot iron over it to heat set the paint.
Happy Mother's Day!
