Article: Valentine's You've Got Mail

Valentine's You've Got Mail


*** UPDATE *** All your Peltex troubles are over.  Achieving beautifully smooth seams using Peltex is now available after learning this trick (blogged in 2007 under the term Timtex - which the market term has now been replaced with Peltex. 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 three: one for SweetPea, one for her teacher and one for Cowboy's teacher.  However, 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.

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 of a puzzle 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 also includes.
