Valentine's You've Got Mail

*** UPDATE *** All your Peltex troubles are over. Hope in perfect seams using Peltex is now available after learning this trick (blogged in 2007 under the term Timtex, which the market has now been replaced with Peltex, by the way. So, if you're doing a Google search for over-an-hour using the term "Peltex Tips", it will get better results by plugging in Timtex.)


I found this pattern on the Moda Bake Shop blog. I have plans to make one for SweetPea, her teacher and Cowboy's teacher, but after the war with Peltex that plan may have to be re-thought. Cowboy is now requesting one that is Lego-shaped. So, we shall certainly see by the end of the week how that all turns out, won't we.

Fabric is some that I had leftover from a few years ago. SweetPea is already getting her little Valentines ready.

Pattern instructions were a bit unclear regarding cut out, but overall it was rather easy to construct (aside from wrestling with peltex - I'm going to make another one and see if I can't insert the peltex after the fact so my seams aren't so lumpy). **(see update at the top)

I'm hoping to add the little sewn "envelopes" that the pattern includes.
