Valentine Hearts…

January 25, 2013 by 43 Comments

Pinterest and blog-world are filled with inspiration for Valentine’s Day, it makes me want to jump right in and join the fun! Visiting Jane’s blog ~ Cottage at the Crossroads~ inspired me to go to the fabric store where I picked up a couple of fun Valentine prints.  I took them with me to our daughter’s house, she provided the pinking shears and we had fun creating fabric Valentine hearts.  We cut out the hearts with pinking shears, hand-stitched around the edges, filled the hearts with some poly-fill and secured the stitching.  I was excited to take some of the hearts home and put them on display in this small rustic carrier, along with some felt and wooden hearts adding more texture and interest.

Valentine Hearts For extra fluff  and lift I put some poly-fill in the bottom of the carrier – and placed the hearts on top.

Valentine hearts My grand-daughter gave me one of the hearts she made, it’s the one in the front left  corner. That’s a special one!

Valentine hearts 1 This little charming box found it’s way to the guest-bedroom….and I also took a couple of the fabric hearts (fabric only) and put them in a white frame.  What a neat way to welcome guests during this season! Let them know they are loved for sure!

I’m so glad you stopped by for another visit here at home!

    Love the little hearts!!! I think the one your grand daughter did was great…I understand why it is so special to you. Anything the kids do are “special”. Have a wonderful Friday :)

    I just put a basket on the back of our toilet, but I don’t have anything to go inside… These would be perfect – and I could make different ones for different holidays! Found you at the Make the Scene link up party – I’m a new follower!

    Have a great week!

    It looks so pretty Moni. And every time you look at it, it’ll remind you of the fun time you spent with your daughter and granddaughter. I love that you framed the fabric hearts, too. Such a simple idea but it looks lovely, and can easily be changed out with the seasons. Have a great day!
