7 Days of Crafting Love – Day Three – Gift LOVE

The big day is coming up…

Valentine’s Day!!

Welcome to Day Three of my 7 Days of Crafting Love!

Want to make a fun gift for your sweet ones? Here are two ideas for you:

 

This fun mug rug (glorified coaster) is a sample of a set I made for friends as Valentine’s gifts. I took two pieces of 54″ square of fabric and placed batting between them. I then practiced my long arm quilting all over the fabric.

I cut rectangles out and bound them and added sweet words that reminded me of my friends. For the words I used Aurifil 28wt black thread that is perfect for thread painting. I plopped on my free motion foot and “wrote” with the sewing machine.

It’s a fun meaningful quick gift that you can personalize for your loved one.

Here’s another idea…

This year, Julie over at Intrepid Thread is doing a Project of the Month out of this awesome book, Sew Illustrated. This is where I got inspired to thread paint. I also got my 28wt thread from this month’s POM!!

This is such a cute project and perfect for a Valentine’s gift for anyone of your friends…like me! 🙂

You could buy cute new pencils to put inside. Or candy…especially candy if you’re giving it to me! 🙂

This project takes a bit longer than the first project, but it is way worth it!

If you don’t have time to make something, kitties make great gifts!!!

Come back and visit tomorrow for some quilt block LOVE!!!!

Love and Blessings!
