Valentine Pouches

Over the weekend, I found a really cute tutorial over on MADE. I changed it up a little since I don't have a serger. Instead, I used some fusible web to bond two pieces of fabric together (a cotton muslin and a cotton print). Using the fusible web helps minimize fraying, plus it also allows for a fun lining :)
After sewing the pouches, I used pinking shears to pink the edges.

I filled them with smarties and Phineas and Ferb fruit snacks.

And the most awesome dinosaurs ever that I found at the dollar store. We live in a tiny town, but it has a dollar store, and it totally rocks :)
The pouches were a huge hit, and after the candy is gone, they can be used tote around treasures. Sweet.

12of12 | February (Saturday)

An explanation of "12of12" found HERE.
1. James does the New York Times crossword puzzle everyday. He pretty much rocks.
2. A cute face that I love. Especially when she has mop-head hair, and a gooey face.
3. Another cute face that I love.
4. My shoes as James and I head out on our V-day date.
5. On the road to our V-day date.
6. Self-portrait in the reflection of the car window.
7. James and I always hold hands in the car.
8. What I'm reading right now: The Merchant of Venice. One of my favorite quotes: "With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come." And yes, I mark my favorite passages in the books that I read :)
9. Cute Ethan when we got home from our date.
10. Movie Ticket stubs to the movie that we saw.
11. I heart Shakespeare.
12. Good night!

I think this may be my favorite print yet :) With personalization, and without (below).

I would love this one for Natalie's room. Available in a variety of colors.

"I am a child of God" without the flower.

I love this yellow one. It's mellow and cheerful. As always, they're available in my shop.

Have a lovely weekend :)
