Remember how I talked about the Valentine's Craft Swap a few weeks back? Well, I received my gift in the mail yesterday and couldn't wait to share it! My swap partner sent me a beautiful felt dahlia (or chrysanthemum) pin. I have seen the pattern for this online [here], but have never worked up the courage to make one. I think it's lovely and am so excited to pin it onto my jacket. Thanks, Patty!
Modeling my new beautiful pin (looks great on my hooded sweatshirt, haha).
I bet at this point you're wondering what I sent her. Well, I sewed this cute heart potholder from a pattern at on the Martha Stewart website. I used vintage fabrics that my grandmother had saved. I think it turned out cute, don't you? It even has pockets for your hands to make it easier to take hot pans out of the oven. I also tucked in a wire wrapped vintage glass heart button ring. I hope she likes her gifts as much as I like mine!
