V-Day Obligatory Post

ilyOh 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.

DIY: Heart Sweatshirt

I’m going to show you guys how I made my gloooooorious Heart Sweatshirt [originally from Amy over at A is for Ampersand]!

Supplies:
-2 Sweatshirts [I bought cheap-o 3 dollah ones at Wal-mart]
-Scissors
-Thread
-Pins
-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 2: Cut out the sketched heart.

Step 3: Flip your second sweatshirt inside out and place heart in the middle, fuzzy side down on the FRONT of the sweater. And pin!

Step 4: Move kitty off of your project! She could hurt herself  if she gets any closer to those pins!

Step 5: Sew heart onto sweatshirt. Be careful not to double up and sew the sweatshirt together!?!

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!

Didn’t I say it was wonderfully sweet and simple? As seen on my Valentine’s Day post…. I wore mine with a Nerdbiskit mustache pin! So many compliments on this outfit!!

DIY: Felt Hearts

I made a super beautiful Valentine’s Day garland this past week!! It’s my first DIY that I created all by myself, guys!! :) And I have to say, I’m pretty proud of it!

Supplies:
-Needle
-Embroidery Thread
-Felt
-Stuffing (not the food kind) ;]

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! =)

Step 2: Sew around the heart, leaving a small space to stuff the heart.

Step 3: Surprise Surprise! Now we stuff the heart! And sew the thing shut!

Step 4: Gather all your pretty hearts and put a string through the back of all of ‘em!

Step 5: ENJOY!!!!!! My very first creation for all of you! I know it’s not that creative, but let me have this one, okay? ;]

Also, beware of kittens who like to help!
