Valentines Day!

I spent all day Friday putting the finishing touches onto my Valentines brief from the BTSDA for which I made some small appliqued framed pieces, and a selection of cards.

  I had a rumage through my ever expanding stash of fabric, and used a mix of old and new floral, polka dot and generally 'pink' material to pick out and applique some of the detail of my 'Poppy Treffry esque' line drawings designs.

Painted frames with applique and blanket stitched hearts.

Although VERY fiddly, I had lots of fun making and dressing my army of 'gingerbread lovers' complete with hand embelished buttons.

I finished the cards using a screen printed black outline, and I have to say, I was so so pleased with how sweet they looked.
I will most definatly be making some more soon! 

I hope they all make someone a lovely Valentines day gift!
