So I have a non-specific goal. I have promised myself I would actually make a few things I've pinned at Pinterest. So far, I've mostly been pin-happy. Today, I tackled a cute project I pinned months ago. When I went back to investigate the original source (to give credit as we all should when making projects from Pinterest), I realized that this was actually a Pottery Barn item. No WONDER those scallops were so perfect! I am not that precise so I simply cut out a rectangle from felt, used my Fiskars pinking sheers to make cute edges and then sewed up the sides, created a triangular flap, added a pink sheer-edged heart and sewed on some heart buttons. On the back, I just added 2 lengths of tulle with some hot glue (I would'a sewed it but I am hoping to find my pink tulle before I call this project finished) and tied it on a little chair.
Here is my original inspiration from this blog entry: http://blonde-designs.squarespace.com/blonde-designs-blog/2010/2/1/i-love-valentines.html
And here's the process I followed:
