Blessings this Mother's Day to all of the moms out there! This includes everyone who wears the hat: traditional mothers; birth, adoptive, and foster mothers; bonus moms; households with two mothers; trans moms; mothers who have experienced unfathomable loss; chosen moms; and more. My own mom has been a huge inspiration to me and I wouldn't be the woman I am today without her guidance. I hope that this free pattern captures the unconditional love that we have for our children, and the care and support that our moms provide to us.
This pattern finishes out at 10" and the pieces themselves are fairly easy to piece. There are a few teeny pieces that can be left out if desired, but they help round out the pudgy little baby fingers. The most difficult part will be lining up the sections.
Mother's Day can be a complicated day for some people, since the mother-child relationship can be a complicated (or nonexistent) one. This pattern can also be used for a number of other occasions, like Father's Day, or for a grandparent in a nursing home, or in a large quilt for your favorite daycare center or library.
You can find this pattern in the shop in the Holiday Freebies section.
