#sewthelove this Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! It’s that time of year again when we have a great excuse to tell those close to us ‘I love you’ and to sew all things red and heart shaped!

There are so many fun projects out there and not just for your other halves – there are some gorgeous Valentine’s gifts that you can make for your children, family and even yourself!

Design

In issue 4 we have a great project by Victoria Peat from Little Black Duck.  This sequin heart T-shirt can add a touch of sparkle to any plain top and inject some heart-shaped love into a child’s wardrobe. Why not, upscale it for an adult T-shirt too?

Another fab T-shirt refashion comes from Ashley at Make it and Love it.  This top is made from charity shop buys, so for only a few quid you could bring a big smile to any loved one.

We love this DIY zipper purse tutorial from That’s My letter too. Made from drop cloth canvas and red gingham cotton, it’s the ideal size for holding keepsakes or little heart-shaped sweets!
