story, the graphics, the general fun the country seemed to have over it all, etc. made the card a fun little souvenir. Of course the Swedes had to celebrate the story with great design!
I made a few valentines for friends and family this year and had fun with it. Maybe they're not as great in the design department as the Swedes, but fun nonetheless! What about you? Any handmade goodness going out to the people you cherish? We made heart-shaped waffles today and I've been busy stitching up some cuteness for my 2 and 4 year old valentines (nieces) across the pond. They were so tickled when I allowed them a tiny sneak peek on Skype. I'd ordered a couple of decorative patches online, a big owl for the eldest and a little matrysohka doll for little sister.
I just realized I don't have clear thread and am a bit stumped about attaching the patches. They're iron-on, but I hear that doesn't always stick for good. I'm also attaching them to something fleece and I'm worried about melting the fleece...anybody have any tips or ideas on how to attach a patch to fleece?
