Happy (almost) St. Valentine’s Day! I’m thrilled to get this one out in advance of his feast day, *and* with plenty of time to make. I’ve been organizing my time this year by the day, and it’s amazing what a little planning will do for you!
Saint Valentine is a third-century Roman saint, and is the patron saint of love and happy marriage. He was arrested for marrying Christian couples, and the townsfolk wrote letters to him while he was in prison. He wrote each one of them back – thus started the “valentines”. During his prison stay, he befriended the emperor – but it was to no avail. He was martyred on February 14, 269.
…but onto happier notes! These plush dolls are absolutely beginner friendly, and can be sewn by hand or with a machine (though I recommend a machine). Each is hand drawn and comes printed on a fat-quarter of fabric ready to sew. Instructions are printed on the fabric, ensuring you’ll know how to make her as soon as she arrives in your mailbox.
Please note that the images displayed on your screen are slightly blurred to protect copyrights. The images on the printed fabric are crisp and clear.
