Feather Your Mother’s Nest

Every mother loves to receive something homemade from their kids no matter how old the child. However, as the years go by all big kids must find new ways (other than Popsicle sticks) to express themselves. We here at the workshop find that if you start with something store bought the job is simplified. So, please review the DIY pillows we have rounded up.

A button here, a ribbon there, or a painted stripe is just what any pillow needs to be the perfect gift that will feather any mother’s nest!
