1. Gold Heart Pinata / 2. Painted Heart Jeans / 3. Heart Pocket Apron / 4. Valentine Medals (via Make) / 5. Heart on Your Sleeve TutorialÂ / 6. Winged Origami Heart Cupcake ToppersÂ / 7.Â Quilled Heart Bottle Cap Jewelry
These are seven of my favorite Valentine projects from recent weeks in the crafty blogosphere. Let me count the ways I love them! That gold pinata is freaky cool, and the heart-print jeans and heart pocket apron are simply adorable. The medals and cupcake toppers are so sweet and could be coupled in a really cool heart-slash-military theme party. A love army party theme! Then, those quilled hearts with the glitter are so fun – I imagine giving a high school BFF one of those necklaces as a gift. But what really stole my heart this Valentine’s season was #5. The reverse applique tutorial is fantastic, but it is a rare day a projet makes me tear up. Her dang dog did just that! (And her post has even more ridiculously sweet dog pics in it, if you’re a dog lover like me.) Puppy love indeed.
