Day 713

It's a double excitement day today.

First, my book is again free. Last time before Valentine's Day to get it at no cost to you. If you didn't get a chance to download it last week, click on that link over there to the right to get your free copy.

And number two, finally another Tutorial Tuesday. Yeah, I know - it has been a long time since I did my last one. But let's forget about that and just take a look at what I have for you today. A great way to use up those scraps and make some Valentine's Day cards in the process.

In addition to the standard sewing supplies, for this project you will need:
  • Fabric strips, 1” to 1 ½” wide in varying lengths
  • 8” x 10” piece of muslin for foundation
  • Cardstock
  • Heart template – make your own or download HERE

Behind the scenes secret: I've been pretty sick these last few days and have spent most of my time in bed. While making this video there were several comical - yet embarrassing - sneezing fits, coughing attacks, and pretty ugly nose-blowing sounds. Thank goodness for editing software! Oh yeah, and ignore the ugly arthritis gloves.
