My Funky Valentines


I love everything about Valentine's Day.
I don't subscribe to the idea that it's a holiday reserved for couples. No way.  It's far more fun to do things for everybody you love. You know how the elementary school kids decorate shoe boxes and make cards for everybody? They've got the right idea.
I've fashioned some sweet little fabric valentines. It's a quick project requiring the most basic of sewing skills. I want to make about a bazillion of these funky valentines.

Even outside of the Valentine's Day theme--how cute would these be in a nursery?! I've hung them across a mirror (below) but am totally picturing them strung across a crib. Minus the buttons, of course (choking hazzard).

I love this fabric. (Ruby by Bonnie & Camille for Moda) It's so bright and happy. Probably why I've been using it for every single project lately. Everybody wants one of these valentines.
 
I made a free pattern so you can make some too! Just click on the link below:
