Valentine's Day is just a few weeks away, but there is still time to pull out the crafting spirit and whip up a hand made goody for your sweetheart. The internet is full of tutorials and patterns for Valentine's Day, but this is a round-up of some of my favorites, and most of them are free! So pull out your sewing machine, or dig out your needle, and lets get started! After all, what better way to say "I Love You' than with a hand-made goodie!
First up, If you enjoy sewing, this wonderful Heart Bag Pattern is available from Country Kitty.
If quilting is more your style, then look no further than Simple Simon and Co., who offer this free Baby Heart Quilt Pattern.
Cluck, Cluck Sew offers a pattern for Heart Blocks in several sizes.
You can use the block to make a Heart Pillow like this one from Gluesticks.
Elisa and Higgs has this fun Heart Pouch that would be perfect to hold a new lip gloss or nail color for a teenager.
If you like the idea of a pouch and but would rather stitch, Victoria’s Sampler offers a free Teeny Tiny “Love” Bag to hold a few Valentine’s Day Treats. My EGA chapter did this as a project this month, and mine is almost done
Embroidery and Valentine's Day just seem to go together, and this Heart Sampler by Rachel from Adventures in Making would make a great gift.
If you would like a more whimsical style, then this fun Embroidery Heart Design from Wild Olive might tickle your fancy.
If you would rather work with felt, then Modern Country Style, has a tutorial on this lovely Blanket Stitched Heart.
If you are willing to stitch and sew, and are smocking for that special someone for Valentine’s Day, then here is a free Valentine’s Smocking Plate from Creations by Michie.
This is one of my very favorite’s – this Heart Pincushion or ornament from Victoria’s Sampler is just lovely!
Happy Sewing and Stitching and Happy Valentine's Day!
