Jean Franks Beck: A Little Valentine

Hello friends! Jean here, sharing a little Valentine I made for a "virtual Valentine exchange" using some kit ingredients I purchased on Etsy. I used those adorable swinging cuties from Relish Reading once again (can't get enough of them!), this time snuggling within a heart doily. I threaded some seam binding along the outside edge of the doily and tied a bow at the top. (You could of course do this with a regular round doily as well, as long as it has regular perforations around the edge that are big enough to support the ribbon.) The stitched blue background is "kraft paper bag paper" - it has color on one side, and you can distress it with sand paper to take off some of the color to shabby it up. A bit of patterned paper, a fabric yo-yo, button, tag, and some baker's twine finish it off. Have a wonderful weekend!
