Oh Valentines Day, you are the bane of my existence. Not really. I just don’t really like you as a “holiday” or as a friend. I am a firm believer in loving the person you are with and telling them so throughout the year. I am also a fan of surprises and surprising your loved one all year with little things. That said, Happy V-day if you celebrate it. Otherwise, I love you just the same as I did yesterday, reader, and just as much as I will tomorrow.
I’m going to show you guys how I made my gloooooorious Heart Sweatshirt [originally from Amy over at A is for Ampersand]!
-2 Sweatshirts [I bought cheap-o 3 dollah ones at Wal-mart]
-Sewing Machine [makes it easier, but you can always hand sew with a needle]
Step 1: Draw a heart shape onto the sweater you’d like to be the inside of the finished product. I followed Amy’s idea and wanted my heart inside out to add texture to the finished product, so I drew my heart on the outside of the sweater. In Sharpie. Because I’m a rebel.
Step 6: I didn’t take a photo of this step, but you turn the sweatshirt right side out and CAREFULLY cut out the TOP heart! Then you’re left with this beauty!
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY TO ALL THOSE KITTEHS & PUPS OUT THERE!
Make sure to spoil your babes! <3
Happy Valentine’s Day, all!! Make sure to love your family, your furbabies, your significant others, your coworkers, and most of all… YOURSELF. You are fantastic and worthy of a little self-lovin’ today! :) I’m grateful for all of the people in my life today and every day! Thanks to all my blog followers, readers, and sponsors!
Oh, V-day is in the air, guys! ;]
Step 1: First I cut out hearts in the felt! This was not precise… I wanted them to be all different shapes and kind of imperfect. So they were! =)
In honor of Valentine’s Day, I would like this week’s 5 facts to be about my 5 favorite lovey novels.
1. Pride & Prejudice: I could read this book a million times and still my heart would skip a beat when he follows her through the rain to tell her he “loves her, most ardently.” Oh, Elizabeth Bennett, you are so real and so like me in many ways. <3
3. A Walk to Remember: I read this book once a year. It can easily be finished in one night’s worth of reading and I get caught up in how sweet and kind Jamie is and how their love flourishes so easily.
What are your top 5 lovey books?? :) It was hard to pinpoint 5 books!
-2 Sheets of Felt [I chose a like pink and a ruby red color]
-A ball of yarn [I chose two different colors to add a little depth]
-A 9″ foam wreath.
-hot glue gun
-Something heart shaped [or you could just freehand it]
Step 2: Trace and cut out the heart shapes in your pieces of felt. I used a cookie cutter. =]
Step 4: Now we make it Argyle!! Hot glue an end of the yard in the back and secure, then wrap it around the hearts at an angle. I did top right to bottom left first; cut off from the yarn ball and secure the end in the back with hot glue. Now do the same at the opposite angle and secure with hot glue! And you’re done!!
