On a chilly Saturday morning, I drove up to visit my daughter and her family for the day... and to celebrate my elder granddaughter's 9th birthday. In addition to a set of books, I made her a tote from a running quarter yard of kitty batik fabric I'd picked up.
Emma was ably assisted in opening her presents by her younger sister and Mia, the Wonder Dog!
After a yummy lunch out, we came back to the house to make a few Valentines....
...from double-sided card stock (on sale at Michaels).
You fill the hearts with individually wrapped candies (we used Valentine Hershey's Kisses) and present them to your sweetheart!
After "sewing" the hearts together with a "running stitch" and an "over-the-edge stitch"... I prefer the running stitch. It's easier and uses less ribbon!
