Happy Valentine's Day, Sweeties!
It's been fun sharing a few Valentine things with you this week, Sean and I aren't too much for the mushy stuff, and don't generally make a big deal out of the day, but reds & pinks are two of my favorite colors and if nothing else, I enjoy this day as an excuse to douse the house in them.
Today, I have something extra sweet to share, the best for last! I had a little swap with a few of my friends and these pretty Pennie Pockets are what I made for them, filled to the brim with sweets and a couple little goodies. I loved these as soon as I saw them on Pinterest, and found the pattern in the Moda Bake Shop.
I got to make new yoyo's! It's been a while since I made my last batch, and it was fun to make a few new ones for this project.
The original recipe called for the little pearl drops as above, but I found some pretty heart shaped Swarovski crystals and I couldn't help myself, they were just too perfect.
Stuffed and ready to go, these pennie pockets got sent all over the country!
Oh, one other goody I made and packed into my friends packages...
Remember scrunchies, ladies? Don'cha miss them just a little? I remember a time when I always had a scrunchie with me, either in my hair, or around my wrist, sometimes multiples.
These were a fun little sewing project and could easily be adapted to any holiday simply by changing up the fabric choices. The pattern was originally from one of my favorite fabric designer/quilters, Monica Solorio-Snow, I ran across some that she made for Christmas, adorable!
So, any special plans for today, chums? Nothing spectacular here, I think I'm going to make pizza & salad for dinner and catch up on the last episode of Downton that I missed on Sunday (Sean won't admit it, but he likes that show!), maybe I'll make the pizza in a heart shape this time! Oh, that sounds pretty good actually. I think I'll do it!
Sending you all a squeeze and a big fat Valentine's Day smooch!
