Family Tree: Mother's Day Embroidery Gift

Happy Mother's Day! This year I decided to do a combo Mother's Day-Father's Day gift and embroider a family tree for both my parents.


Pattern: CozyBlue's Family Tree, available on Etsy


This is the same family tree I made for my friend's wedding in the fall, except that I changed up where I put the marriage date since there were already so many leaves to fit our names.

It wasn't until I took these pictures that I realized the tree stump was off center. Ha! Too late now.


I embroidered their children's and partners' names in purple, while the grandkids' names are in gold. All the stitches are back stitches except the outer layer of the tree stump, which is a satin stitch.


It's not an embroidery post without a back-of-the-work shot!

If you are looking for a last-minute gift for your mom, or even a birthday gift, I recommend this. You can download the PDF pattern right now, and if you work realllly hard (or maybe just avoid that satin stitch!) then you can finish it in a weekend.

Did you make anything for your mom for Mother's Day?
