Almost two years ago, I did a tutorial on a little craft I do with my scraps. Little scraps, big scraps, any kind of scraps. With Valentine's Day approaching, I thought I would make some Valentine's cards using my pink scraps.
I take whatever scraps, small or large, that I have and pile them on my sewing machine table.
From there I start sewing pieces together.
I keep adding more pieces until I have a nice size piece to work with.
I find a heart that is just the right size (or you can make your own)
Draw and cut several on Heat and Bond UltraHold.
And we are ready to iron them on the wrong side of your scrappy pieces of fabric.
I like to use the pre-cut cards that you can find at the craft store.
They come with the right size envelopes but you can also use card stock and make your own.
After I iron the heart onto the card I have the option of sewing around the edges
OR you can just draw little lines to accent the heart shape.
Now isn't that a fun quick way to make some scrappy Valentine's Cards using those little pieces of left over fabric??
I made all of these this morning, so it really does not take a whole lot of time.
If you would like to see my other tutorial, check on my side bar or you can find them here and here.
Have a Happy Quilting day!
