Hearts On A String

If you sew two 3” by 9” (or longer) rectangles of thick gray felt together along one side, turn them inside out and sew along the other side, and then cut 1/2” strips, you end up with lots of cute little hearts.

If you string those cute little gray hearts with a mixture of multicolored pompons and felt balls in all sizes and colors, some of them with beads, you end up with a funky heart garland. Just in time for Valentine’s Day.

My inspiration for the hearts came from Pinterest, where else?

Owls In The Shop

DutchGirlOriginals Owl Pillow (7)

Sewing owl pillows is one thing, listing them in my Etsy shop is quite another. There are photographs to make, pictures to edit, listings to write, etc. It’s time consuming and therefore easily put off.

Yesterday morning I finally sat down and finished what I had started. I listed three owl pillows and one Valentine’s Day garland in my shop. Lola and I decided to name the owls from now on and she picked the names for the first batch, with a little direction from me, I’ll admit.

Meet Nathan, Leslie, and Flower. They are for sale right here.
