Sharing recipes, crafts and frugal living, the challenges and triumphs of parenting a neurotypical child and a child on the Autism Spectrum. Yoga Instructor said goodbye to her nightly glass of Chardonnay to give up habits that were not serving her purpose in life! The CocktailMom name remains, however with a new focus on healthy and authentic living.


Hand Embroidered Pillows

I saw this idea a while ago on Plum Pudding and while on the flight home from AZ came across it again in Country Living Magazine. (Congrats Megan! that is so awesome!)
For Mother's Day I whipped these up for my mom and my mother-in-law. Instead of doing a wall hanging, like Plum Pudding, I made throw pillows using only scraps of fabric. Each side of the pillow features one child's hand and the fabric coordinates but is not the same on both sides. Looking back on the pictures now I wish I would have put the date on them. Ah well.
All in all a very simple project to make that hopefully the grandmas' will cherish for a long time.
