Valentine’s Day will be here before we know it and I am ecstatic because Valentine’s Day is one of my very favorite holidays. It’s so much fun to create your own DIY projects for the holiday season. I don’t know about you, but I can’t get enough holiday home decor! This year, I am focusing on hand-sewn Valentine’s sewing projects for the holiday, and I’ve scoured the internet for some of the very best ideas. Keep reading below to find out what they are so that you can make them yourself.
Valentine’s Sewing Projects: Gift Ideas
Using pieces of scrap fabric (that are appropriate for the holiday, of course) to create little gift bags that you can give to your friends or family. Stuff them with goodies like candy hearts, holiday pencils, or even mini-games for kids. No matter what you choose to put inside it, these small gift bags are perfect for the holidays.
Valentine’s Sewing Projects: Quilt Blocks
You’ll have to start working on this project a few months in advance, but what better way to get into the Valentine’s Day spirit than to make your own Valentine’s Day quilt? Use pieces of fabric scraps and this tutorial to make it yourself.
Valentine’s Sewing Projects: Wall Hangings
If you’re really committed to decorating this year, why not make your own wall hanging garland? Believe it or not, these are pretty simple to make for yourself and you can do so using craft items that you probably have. To begin, start by braiding red, white, and pink twine together to create a thick and sturdy rope. This will be what the garland items hang from. Next, cut matching hearts from old fabric scraps, sew them together, right side in leaving one side open. Flip the fabric right side out and then fill it full of stuffing. Sew the hole closed, and tie them off with a string to display on your brand new garland.
Valentine’s Sewing Projects: Table Runners
I think everyone needs a table runner for every holiday! Follow this tutorial of mine to create your own table runner for the holidays. However, instead of using burlap, use a pink or red fabric that looks festive to you. You can even add some yarn pompoms or other accessories to add further detailing to your project. As far as I am concerned, the more accessories, the better!
