Before this online life, I use to wait for the postman every month for my new craft magazine.

soft chunky yarn to make a blanket. 


  • Surprise mom with a Bamboo knitting needle set. She will be able to choose the right needles to work with, depending on her next craft project.


  • Chunky yarn for arm knitting. I love merino wool and chenille yarns. They are so soft and perfect for making a cozy blanket or scarf. (Quick note: when you buy them, make sure you read how many rolls you will need to finish a project. They always give you useful guidelines.)

Mom can sew things for home decor, like pillowcases, bean bags, curtains. Or refresh the closet by sewing a new dress, jackets, pants.

These sewing projects are unique, and she can choose her favorite material with patterns, flowers, and colors.


10. Sewing machine

A good sewing machine is essential. When I started with this craft, I knew I’d use it to make home decor items. It was important for me to be able to use different stitches, settings, and sew different materials.

After many projects, I’m still in love with my Brother sewing machine. It served me well, and I didn’t have to break the bank either.
