Two hearts are better than one....
Valentines day... does it suck or not? Now I'm not complaining... ok maybe a little...but it's not a big thing in this house for a few reasons. One growing up my mom's bday is Valentines day so it has always been about her.. (seriously not complaining) and through my dating years I always end up with guys who really.. well aren't into it. Mr.Aftercraft thinks that everyday is Valentines day.... I should remind him of that when i want him to do the dishes next.... hmmm..
I've wanted to make these earrings for ages. Last year I got half way through and abandoned because I didn't have the right thread, but I did it this year AND in time for Valentines.
You'll need to gather a few supplies.
Chain ( depends on how long you want them )
I cut out a heart from a piece of paper to make a template
I traced and cut out four hearts
Took a length of embroidery floss and used 3 of it's stands and sewed a running stitch around the heart and stuffed a little filling inside of it before I finished it off.
Added a jump ring to my chain and matched it to my shepherds hook.
Then I sewed my heart to the other end of the chain.
And voila! Valentines earring!!!
And of course two hearts are better than one!
I love them...
And they kinda match my "valentines" hair..
and nose... phew sneezed up a storm today!
What are you making for Valentines? Is it big in your house?
