Valentine Hearts & Garland
When I was with my Mom, we went to one of our favorite stores and I saw some cute Valentine items. I decided that I could figure out how to make a couple of them, but have only gotten around to trying this one!
These little hearts are so easy - I freehand cut a heart and hand stitched on the corduroy heart. Then, I stitched around the outside edge of the heart and stuffed with filling. I have only made two - but I picture them in some neat apothecary type jars on top of my china cabinet someday.
Note: the original ones I saw had calico as the top fabric - but I looked and looked and didn't see anything I liked. I found this brown with pink polka dots as a remnant for 12 cents! Gotta love that!
Next up - Emily has been especially interested in Valentine's Day this year. Including wanting to decorate her room! I saw this idea via Crafty Crow and made it in one evening for less than $2! The little ladies love it!
Find a list of previous Valentine ideas here. I am feeling a bit uninspired as to how we will celebrate Valentine's Day around here - what are the rest of you planning?
