- Rhinestone Wristbands: Treat yourself to a little V-Day spah’kle, by adding vintage buttons or brooches to simple, garter stitch wristies.
- Heart Tie: The pattern for this tie is in me and Adrienne’s upcoming book, AwareKnits (Fall ’09). It takes a little more time to make anyway, but you can add a wee mitred heart (see above) to any, pre-made (knit or sewn) tie for a jiffy gift for your guy!
Hugs & Kisses Booties: Show your baby’s feet a little love with these XO booties!
- B/F/F Bands: Best friends need Valentine’s too! Whip these up using the pattern found in Not Another Teen Knitting Book.
Happy Friday, everyone! With less than 24 hours until Love Day, I thought I’d dig up a few pics of Valentine’s projects past and present. Everything you see below can be made in less than 1 day, so if you’ve got a few free hours and a crafty spirit you’ll have no problem getting at least one of these puppies made! Click on each link for necessary how-to info.
Lastly, if you’re looking something for that little lady in your life, whip up a pair of felt slippers using Simplicity pattern #2867. Then, make them your own by decorating them your way! I made punch-embroidered heart appliques and hand-sewed them on the toes, using the blanket stitch.
Have a great Valentine’s weekend!
