Valentine's Day Project Roundup

It's time for a roundup again and this one features some of my favorite Valentine's Day inspired DIY projects.  Let's dive right in!

I created this Love Note Mailbox tutorial a couple years ago and it remains one of my favorite projects!  I still use it to stash and send little notes to my family and we love checking the mail and finding goodies inside!

And what mailbox would be complete without some love letters to go inside?  Here are some ideas for some DIY envelopes you can make!

This tutorial for Love Note Valentine's Day Bunting by Flamingo Toes is so cute!  I think I'm making this one this year!

Allison Harris of Cluck Cluck Sew created this free heart block tutorial and it is so versatile!

You can use it to make a heart quilt, like Allison does here . . . 

or make a mini quilt with different heart sizes, which she provides a free pattern for here . . . .

or you can follow my tutorial for the Lots of Love Table Runner!

The possibilities with this one are endless!

This Ruffled Heart Wreath tutorial is a great way to add a little love to your home decor right as you walk in the door!

I created this Hugs and Kisses quilt tutorial a couple years ago for the Moda Bakeshop using Sandy Gervais's Rambling Rose fabric.

If you need a little Valentine's decor around the house, these cute heart pillows are perfect!

Vanessa Goerzten of Lella Boutique made this Open Heart quilt pattern to showcase her Olive's Flower Market fabric and it is just gorgeous!

The pattern is available here for purchase.

This Encircled Love table topper is just adorable!  Such a great way to add a little Valentine's Day flair to your space and it's a free pattern!

If you are looking for a quick, easy, and functional project then the I Heart Hexagons pincushion is perfect!  It also has a bonus project for little handmade heart beanbags.

This Big Love quilt by Modern Handcraft is so beautiful and looks like a breeze to make!  And it's a free pattern with a full tutorial; even better!

Hopefully this post gives you some ideas of where to start when creating for the big day of love!  Be sure to share any finished projects from this post with me via email or on Instagram by tagging me @sewinlovehandmade.  I'd love to see what your working on and where your creativity leads you!
