Description

This is the Valentine that I gave to my crazy Valentine this year. I found the tutorial at SewMamaSew . I used a khaki linen for the outer envelope and the insert and I used a cotton heart print fabric for the lining of the envelope. I tried my luck at hand stitching my Valentines name on the outer envelope so it looks like it could use some help. I used my embroidery machine to do the lettering on the insert ā€œI LOVE Uā€ and then hand stitched some old heart trim that was given to me off of freecycle.com. Oh and a red button for the closure of the envelope.

Material Notes

100% khaki linen, 100% cotton heart fabric, stiff interfacing, embroidery floss, embroidery thread, regular sewing thread, red button and tutorial from http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/?p=4778.
