Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day

I know its a day late, so I hope everyone had a good Valentines Day with their loved ones.

I decided this year to make my granddaughter, Lisa, a little heart purse.  She likes to put things in containers and take them out.

I used a heart shaped resist and two layers on each side. I know it’s not a perfect heart shape. Its hard to get sharp corners.

When it was dry, I used some white bamboo yarn and couched her name on the purse.

I added a ribbon for a handle with a bow at the top.  Inside I sewed the ribbon down the sides to give it a little strength.

Then finally I put in a little box of chocolates with a Beagle on it.  While she probably won’t be able to eat the chocolate, she’ll get a kick out of the dog which looks like her doggie sister Koyuki.  Sorry about the dark picture it looked much lighter on my camera screen.

I’m working on my challenge piece which is taking longer than expected so I needed something short and sweet for today.  😉

Did you do something felt related for Valentine’s Day?
