Make an upcycled Valentine ... d.i.y. kits now available!

There’s nothing more special than a handmade Valentine. Both giving one and receiving one make my heart pitter patter :gah:   I like to give a little card. A special treat. Or some kind of itty bitty sentimental something to symbolize how I feel.  

Whether you'll be sharing sentiment with just one lovey-dovey or with 52, the winter edition of The Handmade Companion has great Valentine's Day project that will make your heart skip a beat!

In addition to providing instructions for this project, the magazine is full of articles for your handmade home, recipes, tutorials and patterns...including embroidery by My Marigold and sewing by Karen {author of Sewing For Boys}, and more!
