Measure and cut your fabric. I used a cookie cutter for a template.
Sew ric rack to felt hearts in one long strip.
Snip every second felt heart. Fold over and with wrong sides together sew.
Stuff. I found tweezers helpful here.
Trim with pinking shears if you have them and voila, you're done!
You simply must have cookies if you are going to have a Valentine's Tea Party!
I have a few thank yous owing to Donna of Homemaking Made Easy. First, a thank you for the beautiful candle pictured above. It smells as good as it looks! The label says spiced apple and it does smell like apple pie when burning. A lovely companion whilst sewing. I hadn't sent a thank you yet because I was hoping to surprise you with something nice in the mail, but you know how time can fly!
A second thank you for all of the support she has shown me over the last few weeks. A little bit of praise goes a long way in the blogging world and she has given me enough to last a year.
The third thank you is for making me the first "Featured Follower". How lovely to be in the sidebar of her happy and handy blog.
If you have yet to visit Donna I suggest you do. Her blog Homemaking Made Easy is a lovely combination of housework and house love. She sews, she crafts, she cleans and she loves her family. There is even a post on how to make the gorgeous candle pictured above.
