With the 14th fast approaching, I decided to spend some evening TV watching time making a couple of Valentine’s Pips. They turned out so cute that yesterday with the sun shining in and providing great lighting, I held a little photo shoot and experimented with different ways to show them off.
I’ve been looking for an excuse to add that jar of vintage thread spools to a photo. And I’m not sure if you can see the printed sayings but in Canada, Conversation Hearts come in English and French.
These Valentine’s Thimble Pips can of course be used to hold your thimble.
But they also make delightful little gift boxes…
There’s still time to make one or two or even more for Valentine’s Day. My Thimble Pip Tutorial can be found here.
Photos of the Christmas Pips I made can be seen here.
Note: The fabric used for the Hearts Valentine’s Pip is Stof Memories Hearts Peach. The red with white dots fabric is Essential Dots by Moda. I wish now that I’d bought more than just a fat quarter of each. Especially the dots… it is perfect for framing my redwork embroidery.
