Mother’s day is coming soon, so I thought I would gather some cool free patterns I found online that would make a great gift idea if you are looking for something special to make yourself. Handmade gift are always the best! I haven’t tried any of these patterns, but they look really cool. So, in no particular order:
First pattern is a really pretty handbag, made by Grace Anne, from WouldYouLikeYarnWithThat blog. I love the ruffles, and the little flower on the side.

If you are really crafty, and have the time to make a cardigan, then I would recommend this really pretty filigree cardigan, by Vogue Knitting International. You have to register to the site to access the pattern, but it’s free.

How about some slippers? I found a really cute pattern on Ravelry, Mother’s Day SPA’s Slippers, by Annoo’s Crochet. They are really pretty, size is 7-8 adult woman.
