DIY: Sewing A Quick Valentine

mompouch

As much as I love to write about motherhood, I like to sew even more.  As some of you know, I used to make and sell handbags, belts, and baby gifts.  Now I like to find quick projects here and there.  This bag took about an hour from start to finish, and I mailed it off to my mom this morning, filled with chocolate hearts.

You can make this if you are a beginner or intermediate sewer, and you don’t even need your zipper foot.  I found this wonderful tutorial: http://thatsmyletter.blogspot.com/2012/01/g-is-for-goody-bags-3.html  and modified it, using fabric I had on hand.

If you don’t sew, at least consider going old-school and make Valentines with your kids.  There is nothing like doilies, red and pink paper, some glue, some glitter, and markers to take your back to your youth and tap into your inner creative.  Besides, cards are so expensive!

Remember, it’s the thought that counts.

xo,

Brooke
