” Be Mine” “Hug Me” and “Forever”

On Valentines day if I am buying a gift for someone special it has to be Valentine related.  I just can’t buy some random gift.  It has to fall into one of the following categories; it has to be red or pink,  chocolate or flowers, if it’s a book, it has to be about love or Valentine Princesses and if it’s clothes it has to be red or pink or just be Valentine related.  You get my point…..maybe.

It can’t just be some random gift that you would buy say for a birthday.  That’s just my thing.  So putting together the girls gifts for Valentines this year I decided to make them pillow cases.

I only had two choices at the fabric store, the sweet hearts pattern with the cute sayings on them like  “Be Mine”  “Hug Me” and “Forever

Bonus for me was, one included the colour pink and the other orange.  Each of them their favourite colour.

Also included were these lovely homemade cookies with seedless strawberry jam.   Today we visited them for a little tea party and I gave them their Valentine bag early.  I had included  a book each about Valentines and wanted them to enjoy it leading up to the special day.  It also included some chocolates and some tissues with pink hearts.

Tomorrow I will post a little tutorial on how to make a pillow case.  It’s pretty easy actually and the little ones will just love them.
