Embroidered pillows for Valentine's day - gifts for the girls

Jenny Lutes Ruminating Mommy 2015

I had originally meant to give these pillows to the girls for Christmas but I didn't complete them quick enough. I finished the embroidery two nights ago and made the pink minky fabric pillows yesterday. (The patterns came from an Etsy shop, and I spent many evenings doing the embroidery.)

Valentine gifts - diy yarn crafts....

Jenny Lutes Ruminating Mommy 2015
The small purple heart is my creation...I helped Maddie with the
yellow & purple heart...I think she's giving it to me....

Valentine's Day is coming up soon and although my Husband and I don't celebrate the day (neither of us feel like a forced romantic day is all that romantic), I always make it fun for the girls. I'm sewing a gift for each of them [which I'll post soon] and I have small chocolates to go along with the gifts. I'll also make a construction paper card for each girl...perhaps the pop-up variety.

Painted bedroom door initials....

Jenny Lutes, Ruminating Mommy 2015

I bought the girls wooden letters to paint and put on their bedroom door - less than $2.00 each at Michael's.
