Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and two of my favorite things I've made ever are for V-day. In case you wanted something quick and easy to make (that even the kiddos could help with) I'm reposting below with a few notes.
I've been asked many times where I got the wire hoop I used for this - but they were all no-reply commenters that I couldn't respond to :( I found my wire hoop in Joann's in the section where they sell embroidery hoops (or in a nearby aisle). They come in a variety of sizes and are hung concentrically on the hooks. Alternatively, you could use a wire wreath form from in the floral section - but you may need more fabric as they have about 3 rows of wires. If you can't find either or just want to use what you have around you could form a wire hanger into a circle (or even a heart!) and tie your fabrics around that.
If you don't have a sewing machine, you could always needle up a length of sturdy thread or embroidery floss and do a running stitch up the center. This could be a good way to teach a young'un some simple stitchery as well, and can be made in any length to accent a mirror, a piece of art, anything that could use some lovey brightening.
I must now go get myself dressed and ready for the day. Yes, it is officially after-noon, and I'm in my jammies still. But the nephew just asked me to take him to Office Max (I know!! What?!?!?!) so I must be off. And then it'll be time for some quiet Sunday stitching.
See you all in a bit!
