Valentine’s Craft-a-Day!

Well, since I have many things to procrastinate and my house is a mess, I thought that it would be a good idea to craft more! Ha. So I am going to try to make a new little Valentine’s craft every day between now and February 14. I think that I can at least manage to make a card or bake some cookies, right? We’ll see how it goes. Anyone want to join me?

So I made these hair clips today.  I just cut out a couple of hearts (hair-clips-template.pdf) and sewed them together with embroidery floss.   I have never really done any hand embroidery before, so I had to draw dots with a fabric marker to evenly space the stitches.  Do you see that those are supposed to be an x and o?  I didn’t think I could sew a nice circle, so I used a button instead.  Then I used a glue gun to attach them to the clip.  All in all, a pretty simple and quick project.  You can search Etsy for all kinds of hair clip ideas.

    Also? I think it’s a great idea to make a Valentine craft every day until the 14th. I think I am going to try and join you on this one. Thanks!
