Make A Simple Valentine And Fill It With Love…Or Chocolate
Lazies, With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, here is a simple project that you can customize for a personal and special gift. Make an A-Door-Ables and fill it with notes of love or friendship. Your special Valentine can open a note a day and think of you!
Where To Hang
Hang an A-Door-Ables on a door knob, drawer pull or anywhere you like. You can even thumbtack it to a bulletin board.
Hang from the nightstand for a great place to hold your eye glasses overnight. Place near the door for your keys.
Yes, the A-Door-Ables is open at the bottom. And you can stitch it closed, stuff a little stuffing in there to clog the hole, or leave it as is depending on how you choose to use it.
Ideas For Fillers
- Individually wrapped chocolate or other candies.
- Wrap some chocolates in cellophane, tie with a ribbon.
- Love notes.
- Fill with scented potpourri and stitch closed for a sachet.
- Fill with treats for a pet lover.
Fabrics And Supplies
You’ll need a small amount of fabric and some goodies for decorations. I used three coordinating fabrics for each A-Door-Ables and a little ribbon or yarn. Grab a couple of fat quarters of fabric and you’ll have enough to sew up a handful of these versatile favorites.
Make Your Own
My project is from a simple concept that can be adapted to lots of hand crafted items. Grab some wonderful fabrics, make a special something, put some love notes in it, give it to your honey. If you want to make this project, our A-Door-Ables pattern (LGD109) is available at local quilt shops or online retailers. Check our store guide for lots of options.
