Valentine Table Treat

It's hard to believe that Christmas has only just passed and we're well on our way to approaching Valentines Day. So while I have the time I thought I'd make this Valentine Table Treat by Karen at "...laugh yourself into Stitches".

This table treat measures 10" x 10" and is perfect for putting a small dish of sweets on. Unfortunately sweets and chocolates don't last two minutes in our house with me around so I'm going to hag mine up in my sewing room.

My pinwheels are by no means perfect as you will see in the photos below. I used fabrics that weren't quilting cottons so they came out uneven and a bit mismatched but I still love it and hope to make a better one next time.

The Pillow Kisses measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" and I attached some matching ribbon so I can use it as a hanging pincushion.

Despite my terrible attempt at half square triangles I love this table treat. If you'd like to make one in time for Valentines you can go to Karens Craftsy Store where you can buy the pattern. Also in Karens Craftsy Store are other beautiful patterns and some of them are free so check those out.

Karen also has many wonderful tutorials on her blog so make sure you stop over there for a look.

Yesterday I completed a test bag that I'll be sharing with you after the 20th when all the testers have finished their bags, so keep an eye out for that one, it's a really nice and easy pattern.

  1. Aww those are so cute - I love gingham and polka dots!

  2. Another wonderful Work!
    Valentine.............I almost forgot about this day ;O)
    Happy new week,

  3. It's beautiful Maria! Did you already get the pattern to test from Christine? I didn't get it. I only got info about using faux leather, but not the pattern. Or did you make a test bag for a different designer?

  4. You know I just love the red polka dots always brings a smile to my face :-)
    Now you can think of me every time you stick pins in your pincushion...LOL

  5. You did a lovely job ! I also love gingham and polka dots, will be a touch of freshness in your sewing room!!!

  7. that is just adorable, is there much better than red and polka dots? I can't see a problem with your points at all!
