What inspired this particular FRIDAY ! FREEBIE was this video from Art Gallery Fabrics. It just looks so fun…and easy. What do you think? It made me want to rush to my sewing machine. I always have a box of Strathmore Creative Cards ready to go. If you don’t have any, use some special paper and cut or fold it to card size.
Since valentines day is around the corner we want to inspire you to make cute and fun things! Check out this DIY tutorial where you will learn how to make cute valentines cardsFeaturing: Wonderful Things fabrics by going home to roost (Bonnie Christine)

Here are some ideas from the Missouri Start Quilt Company. They use Pellon for the backing. If you’re going to stitch over top the hearts, I’d just use glue. However, if you want to put the pieces on without glue, try using Steam-A-Seam Lite 2. It will work well and allow you to move your pieces around on the card stock until you like what you have. Another tip is to save your left over bits of fabrics that already have Pellon or Steam-A-Seam or Heat n Bond. These projects use small pieces that won’t be useful elsewhere. This way, nothing goes to waste. I particularly like the hearts-tree card which you’ll see about the half-way point in the video.
If you want to make a heart-shaped bag, I recommend this video by Debbie Shore. You could make this bag in an hour or so for the little person in your life. Make a small one and fill it with chocolate for Valentine’s Day.
