Hand-Stitched Valentines

Today I am sharing some simple, sweet hand stitched Valentines, but quickly–a big thank you to everyone that stopped by and linked up at my first link party.  I had a lot of fun kicking it old school with you all!  I was so pleased to hear that so many of you feel the way I do–that our old projects are worth a little attention too!  Come back next week with more old projects to link up!

On to a quick Valentines craft.  I stitched up some little Valentines ornaments for a few of my special Valentines.  Some people deserve more than a card, am I right?  These are cute and will serve as a nice keepsake.

I’m not going to belabor this how-to.  It’s really simple.

I cut out two hearts.  Cut a heart-shaped window in one.  Stitch in a piece of complimentary fabric in the window, and then stitch on the back and stuff it.

I used just a simple running stitch for this entire project.

And here is a quick shot of me and my Valentine, my dear hubby…from those days before kids, you know when we used to take pictures of us, not just our kids!

Thanks, as always, for being here!

I’d love for you to connect with me in some way!
