Sew and Tell: quilted valentine’s cards

I’ve seen so many beautiful Valentine’s Day projects popping up on various blogs. Seeing all the Valentine posts inspired me to make some special cards.

I printed out some of my favorite flower photos on printer canvas. You can buy printer canvas at office supply stores.

I cut out the photos and sewed them onto quilt batting.

With each quilted card, I’ll slip a little handwritten note into the envelope.

 These quilted cards can be used for Valentine’s Day or general year-round use.

Whatever the occasion they’re handmade with love.

  1. You always have such cute projects! I started sewing with a paper/fabric combo a couple years ago and love it. These turned out lovely. Thanks for linking!

  2. Ok - I am so doing this! I have everything i need at hand and what a beautiful idea. I may actually stitch mine onto card stock. I have been so anxious to try out the printer canvas.

    Thank you! This is going to be fun!
