Happy (late) Valentine's Day!  This year I embroidered a bunch of little muslin treat bags, filled with sea salt + caramel chocolate, hot chocolate sticks, and pretty lollipops from France to give to my sweetheart and some of my pals.  It was pretty fun since I was really missing being a kid and handing out valentines in class.  Wasn't that the best, back in the day?  I remember making a box in school to hold all the valentines from classmates.  There's no reason adults can't do such things.

and what a great idea, to have a box to store those valentines in...i might just start that for all my cards (i find it hard to throw away some birthday/xmas/random cards too!). thanks!

These are so lovely and remind me of polish cutouts. Just had a question but how come you don't do bigger runs of your products??

These are so beautiful! This year I knit little hearts and sewed them onto brown card stock cards and sent a package of homemade cookies to friends and family. I love doing little Valentine's day things like that!

i love the daintiness of these! So adorable. Did you also print on the bags? I'm curious where you got the pattern?

Thanks!

Thanks, everyone!

Melanie,
I drew the design on paper with an amazing pen, the Iron-On Transfer Pen from Sulky. Then I just used a hot iron to transfer the design to fabric. You can use the transfer over and over again. It's brilliant! Then I embroidered over it. I got the little heart motif from a bit in a stocking project in "Christmas Crafting in No Time" by Clare Youngs, and then I added my own little embellishments to it.
