I decided at the last minute to enter the True Love Valentine Contest at Sew, Mama, Sew! and make this little fabric card and envelope for my son. I used the same technique that I recently used to make my husband a notebook cover, but this time, I used a smaller paintbrush and painted before embroidering, which worked better than trying to paint right up to the stitching. (and I used a picture he drew of me and him instead of Daddy and the cat).
I’m sure he won’t be terribly excited by it, but it will make a nice keepsake. And I know he’ll at least like the envelope, since he’s always writing letters to friends and relatives.
