Happy Valentine's Day!

This is what I made for Courtney for Valentine's Day. The tutorial for the heart pouch was from Erin Erickson, and the idea for adding the strap came from Debbie Jeske.

The lining matches part of the strap.

I was going to stick this little hologram card, which is about the size of a credit card, into it, but it's such a tiny pouch that it wouldn't fit!

What to put inside?! I decided on this little zipper pull. I always get a free zipper pull when I order from ZipIt, and this one just happened to be the right color and even has almost little heart-shaped designs on it. Perfect!

I delivered it to Courtney after school yesterday. She was scheduled to come here today, but plans got changed, and I didn't want to wait till our next Courtney/Grandma day on Monday. So here she's modeling it, the purse version:

And the necklace version:

I hope she has fun with it... and finds some very tiny things to put inside! :)

Tiny things are not hard to come by, and must be carried! Love the pouch, and her smile is so sweet!

Debbie said...

Very cute! It IS tiny, isn't it? What a sweetie your girl is.

Jessica Jones said...

Cute, Mum! Such Valentiney fabric, too!

Aunite Kris said...

Darling! I'm sure she'll have not trouble finding something really small to put in it.

Very cute purse, GG! What a fun way to make a patchworkish strap, too. And yay for not combining red and pink in the same project! Red and white are fabulouser. Also love those spikes on your greenery (and brownery) in the yard. I suppose we have some on our greenery and brownery back home, too, but I am enjoying not seeing them. Till we get back, I mean. Maybe by then all the spikes will be gone for the year. One can hope. Stay warm!
