Are you all sick of so many Valentine's projects yet? I think you can kinda tell that we love Valentine's! For me, it's an excuse to decorate a little more girly. In my boy house, it's sport teams, footballs, jerseys, trucks, toy guns, and Star Wars. So, I love anything pink, red, frilly, or feminine.
These "love sacks" are influenced by staring at tons of blogs. A little bit of this and a little bit of that. Nicole told me not to name them "love sacks" because people might think it's derogatory! :) I'm not sure what else to call them? I wonder what people we might pick up off of Google's search looking for a "love sack"?
These were so easy to make! I first found a font and I didn't even print it off. You know, computers make great light boxes. I held my freezer paper up to the computer screen and penciled it right on. It saves some ink. I then used an exacto knife to cut the freezer paper out carefully.
Iron the freezer paper onto the fabric.
Most people have stenciled the paint on, but I prefer spray paint. It sprays on so evenly!
Just make sure you cut your freezer paper wide enough to cover the fabric.
Look at that! So cool!
I sewed the two pieces of burlap together and stuffed with fiberfil, then finished the sack off with twine.
I swear we have some other projects besides Valentine's stuff coming really soon! :)
