Valentines day top hat

I whipped up a Valentines day top hat. This photo doesn't show the color very well, but it is black velvet with a red glittered design. I've been doing a lot of sewing lately, and I made these little felt letters that spell out...I love how each one turned out... here is the L...and the O...and the V....and lets not forget the letter E...I reused the ric rac I had hung for Christmas and just draped some paper doilies over it and clipped the felt letters to it. I think I would like to add a round red circle to the back of each one of these to finish them off, along with making two more sets of these. I'll just add that to my every increasing list of things to do!

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment! You definitely would LOVE the Cricut - I made tons of banners (like your love one, only paper) and once you figure the design you want, and papers you want, they go together quickly. Thanks again! Becky G. in GA
