Love Is In The Air


I love all of the decorations that go with Valentine's Day: hearts and lace and pink and red and ribbons...yum! So, when one of my favorite customers asked if I could make some ornaments for her Valentine tree, I think I swooned a little.

I had so much fun picking out fabrics that were just right for this job! I made her a set of 24 adorable upcycled ornaments out of baby blankets, sheets, bandannas, scarves, pajamas, a child's dress, and a men's shirt. Each one has a little pink flannel heart patch on the back, and is hung with a coordinating ribbon. I had never considered decorating a tree for this holiday, but I just might now that I see what a sweet tradition it can be!
