I ventured forth to make Valentines for my parents, and both of my sisters...but I cannot tell you whose is whose because I still want them to be surprised when they arrive in the mail. First I had to gather up supplies: paper flowers, doilies, stamps, and some cute little birds I cut from a scrap of fabric.
Each Valentine got a super special touch. One recieved a carefully crocheted garland of flowers using embroidery floss. It was hard to do it so small, but since I just used a simple chain stitch, it did not take too long.
The end result could not have been more adorable.
I used a combination of bits and pieces for the next one: a snippet from an old button paper, embroidery floss, and a couple of buttons...
(Don't tell the others, but I think it turned out to be my favorite)
The final Valentine got decorated with a bit of stitching, pieces of a paper doily and two little love birds.
I think they all turned out pretty cute! Any one of these would make a nice addition to the refrigerator.
I hope the recipients enjoy getting them as much as I enjoyed making them!
Are you making anything special for Valentine's Day?
