Homemade Valentines Day

This Valentine's Day I decided that I wanted all the gifts that I gave to be homemade. I have honestly never given my children Valentine' Days presents, but this year I decided I was going to make gifts to practice my sewing (this is the second time I am attempting to learn to sew! plus my hubby gave me an awesome sewing machine for valentines day).

This is what I made:

Handmade felt tools for Mr. T:




Baby doll sling for Princess R:

Car rug made of fleece for J:

Don't think my husband was left-out. I made him his favorite chocolate peanut butter cookies.

Hi. Thanks for stopping by, following you back. What a great hubby, buying you a sewing machine. (It's my kind of gift.) I am (semi) new to sewing too. I've been making felt food for my son but the project has taken over a year. I'm hoping to finish the set before he outgrows playing with his kitchen =).
