Now, I know some people save V-Day for their significant other, but me and Hubby, well, just never really got into it as a routine kind of thing. Instead, I've always tried to set a little something out for the kiddo, just to remind her how much we love her :)
For full disclosure here, I didn't really have anything planned this year. I was literally going to go to the $ store the day of and give her a trinket-y gift when she came home from school. How sad is that? Luckily for me, I was writing about the owl purses when it struck me...
Make her a bag of her own!
And boy, did she ever like it :) I was going to try making an owl with hearts for eyes, but once I finished testing out the hearts, I realized I liked it just how it was!!!
I used the same inspirations I did for the owl bags, but put a valentine twist on it. The heart pattern comes from here, and is amazingly simple! Then I added a little frill along the top and it was done!
I tell you, all these recent projects have given me a new respect for the art of applique! It is so hard to sew everything on and not contort it and have a complete mess of stitches inside!!!
