Although I'm trying to enjoy winter by keeping snowmen, snowflakes and January related decorations up in my home, my mind (with the help of Pinterest) keeps wandering to all things Valentines. And due to my recent thumb surgery, sewing was not an option last week. But this weekend, I figured I had nothing to lose, so I broke out the felt, pink fabrics and pinking shears to begin sewing up dozens of hearts.
I have to admit, the pinking shears hit my thumb in such a way that it was painful to cut, so I asked Cory to cut out the hearts and he kindly obliged. Below is a sampling of the "heart attack" that took place in my sewing room......
|These are two layers of cotton fabric, cut with pinking shears, and top stitched all the way around and then stuffed with a little batting to make them fluffy.|
|Simple and cute, they will really add to my Valentine's decorations.|
|On Tuesday my sister came over bearing these adorable little 'lacy' hearts in pink, red, white and purple felt. I provided the ribbon and we strung up a simple banner to adorn our fireplaces.|
