Amy and I had so much fun with the Holiday Tag-a-Long we did at Christmas we decided to do it again ... for Valentine's Day!
Here's the first one.
I need to thank Amy for cluing me in to the whole scalloped scissors thing. I got mine on eBay.
And the backstitch - although not my favorite - was necessary to create the delicate scrollwork. I also really like the red heart - it reminds me of enamel. I like to think Faberge would be impressed. ;)
This one was fun. I cut out a heart from freezer paper, ironed it to the fabric and just went all Colonial knotty for an hour or so with graduating shades of the same color family.
I struggled for a bit trying to come up with a good idea to finish it off and finally came up with the little bow.
I know ... predictable.
Reminds me of a friend's new pair of shoes.
And then finally this ...
It all started with a lovely print.
I got it from Shabby Fabrics a while ago, thinking it'd be great for fussy cutting.
And believe it or not, this was my first time ever tea-dying something. I usually go for whites. But the inspiration fabric has a creamy background and my white lace was too ... white. This lace just needed to hang out for a few minutes in a mug with a bag if Irish Breakfast tea.
I hope you enjoy these little romance-inspired tags.
You can see Amy's over at nanaCompany. (Love that girl!)
So do you feel some tag love in the air now too?
C'mon. You know ya do!
