A Valentine

Back in February of 2011 BK (Before Kids), I didn’t bat an eye at spending an entire day’s worth of crafting time on Hubby’s Valentine.  I even took step-by-step photos for a tutorial of sorts.

I thought maybe now that I actually have followers, you guys might like to peruse some “vintage” SaraCrafts.  :)

I had started dabbling in embroidery.  This was my second attempt at it and I used some plain, ivory fabric and skeins of embroidery floss I had lying around.  I think I found the design on Flickr somewhere (just search for embroidery patterns).

So there you have it!  The absolute prettiest Valentine I ever gave.
