Red Heart sure has us covered with their selection of patterns. You will find shawls, blankets and more. They even have some simple projects that kids could make too.15 Free Mother's Day IdeasOne of the great simple projects is a keychain with a pom pom and tassel. Kids will love making this project for their mom and it is a great way to use up scraps. We all know there are piles of left over balls just hanging around waiting to be used.

When thinking of mom we can’t forget the Scrubby Collection. Red Heart just released a NEW Scrubby yarn, Scrubby Cotton. This is a great alternative to the Scrubby that you know and love. It still has the texture of scrubby but is now 100% cotton. Any of the Scrubby patterns that you find on Red Heart’s website can be substituted with any of the three Scrubby Yarns (Scrubby Original, Scrubby Cotton, Scrubby Sparkle). In this Mother’s Day round up they show the Watermelon wash cloth, which is part of the 7 Month’s of Scrubby Campaign. That is not the only option that you have. I just released a video showing you how to make the Color Block Back Scrubber which would be a perfect gift.

15 Free Mother's Day IdeasShawls are a great gift for mom because as she puts it on it will remind her of a hug from you. There are MANY shawl options on Red Heart’s website so be sure to check them all out. They have options in all different weights of yarn to choose from.

Another gift that will wrap mom in your love is a blanket. I know, I know, you are probably thinking that we are way too close to Mother’s day to start a blanket. Well Red Heart has a selection of bulky weight blankets that will work up quickly yet still look like they took a lot of time.

I hope that you check out all the FREE patterns on Red Heart’s website to find something that will make the perfect gift for your mom!
