Feel the Love

Happy Valentine's Day! We're pretty low key around here, but I did manage to whip up a little something for my better half.

I used an old scrap of canvas, freezer paper and fabric paint to make the gift bag. The little button reads "I'd rather be kissing my crafty wife" and can be ordered with a matching husband button from this adorable Etsy shop.

Inside is a custom t-shirt for my sexy bearded guy.

I used the freezer paper stencil technique again here and I really love the results. It's super easy, doesn't require special tools or expensive materials and you are really only limited by your imagination. If you're interested in making your own there's a great tutorial here and and lots of inspiration to be found here.
