Wishing you LOVE this Valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day! Yes, I’m one of those people that like to make seasonal pillows and quilts! Are you?

LovePillow-Detail-ImFeelinCrafty

I love (no pun intended) this pattern from Quiet Play. You can purchase it here. It’s a 10″ block and then I added the pink and grey borders to make it a larger pillow size.

LovePillow-Zipper-ImFeelinCrafty

A good invisible zipper never gets old! At least not to me. I get so excited when I get it right!

LovePillow-Back-ImFeelinCrafty

I had this little scrap of pink fabric with little hearts on it in my stash. I have no idea why. It’s not my style at all and I don’t know where it came from. But I’ve held on to it for a long, long time… Very confused by this, but… It’s perfect for the back of my pillow! I guess I knew I’d want it one day!

LovePillow-Front-ImFeelinCrafty

ok, I’ll admit, we leave this one out all year. We need love all year, right???

Magic, Gross and Jokes Valentines- Free Printables

Are your kids in school this year? I know a lot of kids aren’t! But if your kids are in trading Valentine’s this year, we have something fun!

We found a great deal on this box of magic tricks, gags and jokes and as soon as my son and I saw them, we knew we could turn them in great Valentines!

GagGiftValentines-last-ImFeelinCrafty

These are a little bittersweet as they were for the last year that the kiddo is going to trade Valentine’s with his whole class. I love making fun Valentine’s. Yes, I’m positive that I’m more upset by this than the kiddo is. Ha!

GagGiftValentines-JokeLabels-ImFeelinCrafty

Let’s start with the Jokester Valentine! You can download this Valentine here.

And for the bags, I got mine at Paper Mart. You do have to buy 500 or 1000, but they come in handy for all sorts of things. I have been using my box for years!

For fillers, I googled PRANK PARTY FAVORS and found some things! You could use whoopie cushions, hairy spiders, fake teeth, fake worms, and noise putty! All of these would make for a good prank joke on your classmates! I also found this assortment of prank gifts.

GagGiftValentines-Magic01-ImFeelinCrafty

Next we have the Magic Valentine! You can download it here.

GagGiftValentines-Magic02-ImFeelinCrafty

Similar to above, I googled MAGIC TRICK PARTY FAVORS. I like to add the party favors part, because they usually come in packs of 10 or so. I found some ideas on Amazon. Remember the magic worms? I loved these things as a kid! Other ideas are metal magic puzzles, magic light up fingers, or these easy magic tricks.

GagGiftValentines-GrossMain-ImFeelinCrafty

And last, but not least, the Gross Valentines! You can download this Valentine here.

Technically, these could be jokes and you could use the jokester Valentine from above. But these are more on the gross side of things than the others! Again, I searched for GROSS PRANK PARTY FAVORS. You could use plastic roaches, or fake poo putty, fake pimples and warts, pimple temporary tattoos, and fart bombs! So many things to choose from!

You could also get fake worms in the fishing department at Walmart or any outdoor stores. Funny story is that as a kid I LOVED the fake worms and bugs and lizardy things from the fishing aisles. I had a huge collection of them! Some of them are very lifelike. And pretty inexpensive.

Which one is your favorite? I hope you enjoy them as much as we did! And for the downloads again, here is the jokester, magic, and gross Valentines. Enjoy!

Impossible is a Bad Word- a mini quilt

Here’s a min quilt you may recognize. I actually finished it in 2019, but again, never blogged about it. Catching up! Late is better than never! ha! This mini quilt was a Curated Quilts challenge for the Well Said Issue. The challenge was to incorporate a word into the quilt, literally or figuratively. I have […]

A Buffalo Cushion

This is an oldie project that I never shared, but since I’m broken and confined to elevating my broken leg, I’m pullin’ out the oldies to share! I’m an architect and at our firm at least once a year a vendor will ask us to participate in a design fundraiser. They usually supply a piece […]

Begonia Quilt Leftovers- Pillows and Potholders!

I just shared my Begonia Quilt that I finished last year and now to show you what I did with the leftovers! To make the Begonia Quilt there was a lot (A LOT) of HST action. Too much for me to make another one. But apparently, I made a few extras without realizing it! When […]

Begonia Quilt- SMQG BOM 2019

My goal this year was to complete all the unfinished BOM quilts from my Modern Quilt Guild. And I did that! Every year the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild does a Block of the Month Quilt. I haven’t started all of them, but I have done 4 of the 6 of them. I helped design the […]

Quick Key Chain Tutorial

I recently made a group of projects for a Graduation Gift. I had used almost all of the fabric I was using for this group of gifts, but I had just a little bit left. Thinking about what else I could make, I thought… a Keychain! That would be easy enough right? So I ordered […]

Yellow and Grey Improv Complete

This little lovely is the 2016 Seattle Modern Quilt Guild Block of the Month! Yep, 2016. It took me four years to finish it for some reason… No idea why… It wasn’t hard. Each month there was a different block or ‘slab’ as the designer, Matt, described it. Each month he’d give us a type […]

Bama Banner

It’s Football Season! So why not make a quilted banner? I made this one for my Dad, who is a super fan of SEC football and more specifically, Bama football… This was supposed to be a Christmas gift for last Christmas, but my To Do List was a little longer than I could possibly get […]

Cross Stitch Keychain

I do love a fun little cross stitch project, do you? I mentioned before that I have a little addiction to quilting and cross stitch magazines. I get these and always find a project in them that I want to make for someone else. So I am always thinking of a way to turn cross […]
