I'm going to make this adorable banner today for Valentine's Day, except I'm going to have mine say "Valentine" instead of being blank like hers. (The tutorial is here -- this version has letters on it too.)

 

 

Please list any other cute V-day projects you'd like to share!

I made matching skirts out of Valentine's fabric for dd, her American Girl Dorothy, and my niece.  I don't have pictures but it's black fabric with hot pink, light pink and red hearts with dark pink glitter all over it.  It's just a simple elastic skirt, with silky ribbon trim along the bottom edge.  They turned out really cute, I'm pretty proud of them.

 

Rereading the fabric sounds tacky, but it's totally dd's style and not tacky at all.

I'm going to make a heart mobile for dd's room. I saw a picture of one from Pottery Barn posted on someone's blog (I can't remember which one) and I liked the idea. I think I'm going to make the hearts with felt, but I'm not sure yet. I should probably get moving, it's already the 10th!

I made semi matching apron style tops for my dds and my best friend's dd. They are very cute, but I don't have any pictures yet.
