Iron Craft ’15 Challenge #2 – Valentines

For this challenge we were to make something for someone we love. I went super literal and made some homemade valentines. I had a lot of fun, it was fast, AND it was a stash buster, so three wins right there.

Homemade Valentines

  • cards
  • fabric
  • scissors
  • sewing machine
  • thread
  • gel glue
  • tiny bit of batting (optional)

First I started with a box of craft paper cards.
I also had some fabric. (Pictured here is Kaffee Fassett, I don’t know the name of the print.) I cut out some hearts and used a couple of different techniques to put them down. One is a no-sew, I just used a tiny amount of gel glue to hold it down.
One of them I sewed almost all the way around, stuffed it with a tiny amount of batting, and then closed it off.
The third I just drew a heart in pencil and then I sewed around the heart on the card. I went around 3 times to give it a little bit more dimension.
I love that one of the biggest things printed on the outside is “reusable box”.
I am not sure where they are going with that. Aren’t all boxes reusable?
