Make something fun and “love”-ly to wear on Valentine’s Day! Then enjoy the heart motif all year with these totally wearable projects. From shirts to shoes to jewelry, from simple to complex, from start-from-scratch to repurposing, you’ll want to make one (or more!) of these projects. So this Valentine’s Day, wear your heart on your sleeve!
Okay, this takes the topic a bit literally, but it’s so darn cute! Add Heart Elbow Patches to a sweater like this one from A Beautiful Mess. “X” marks the spot, then you stitch on a heart cut from pretty fabric!
Love is for all ages, and these Love Matching Outfits from Bobbie at Create Whimsy have this kid and her doll stylin’! Bobbie shares step-by-step photographs so you can share the fun!
Your outfit will be the write stuff when you wear this Wordy Sweater! Practice your crochet chain stitch, then follow Caught On a Whim’s instructions to spell out how you really feel.
A little freeform bead embroidery results in Chardel’s blingy My Beading Heart pendant found on Create Whimsy. If you are just getting started with bead embroidery, then an organic shape like this one is very forgiving!
Free those cookie cutters from the back of the kitchen drawer! Make It & Love It creates a Cookie Cutter Heart Shirt using cookie cutters as a template for her heart appliqué tee shirt. Now, about those shamrock cookie cutters….
It’s all A Matter of Style, and you can transform your stilettos into glittery Love Heels! You can do this with shorter heels, too, if you’re afraid of heights (or breaking an ankle).
Looking for just a little sparkle? And an easy project? The hardest part of making Glitter Heart Earrings from Pinecone Place is waiting for the Mod Podge to dry! Pick a glitter color to match your outfit.
