Heart Wrist Pin Cushion on Messyla

I hope you’ve been enjoying our Valentine’s posts! Today I thought I’d tour the web, and find even more inspiring Valentine ideas for you!

This heart-wrist-pin-cushion-pattern.html”>Heart Wrist Pin Cushion on Messyla is so lovely, isn’t it? I spy our beautiful Needlework-Threads/Filati-per-maglia/Goa.aspx”>DMC Goa Tricot Yarn  in Peach in this wonderful crochet tutorial.

How handy is it to have your needles in ready reach on your wrist? Clever and sweet!

Ironic Conversation Hearts on Honey Thistle

I absolutely love these Ironic Conversation Hearts  on Honey Thistle  – since you can stitch your own sentiment on a heart, be it silly, sarcastic, or loving!

Since all these take are bits of pastel-colored felt, you can use up your scraps, along with a few strands of floss. I’d also love to try some Pearl-Cotton.aspx? pearl cotton  on these, to experiment with a chunkier line.

Valentine Key Ring on Dream a Little Bigger

This valentine Key Ring Tutorial  on Dream a Little Bigger  makes such sweet, stylish hearts!

I’d add a sweet sentiment, or loved one’s initials for an extra bit of goodness. You could also vary this idea using pastel felt for a conversation heart, or bits of scrap fabric, for a quilted look.

Of course we were so happy to spy our lovely  Dmc floss  in the tutorial!

Free Stamp Pattern on Bored and Crafty

Last but not least, this sweet Free Stamp Pattern  on Bored and Crafty  is a great way to experiment with a simple stamp carving project – and the results are adorable, as you can see!

The mug design would look equally sweet as an embroidery design, with or without some wool felt accents!

Felt and Sequin Snowflake on Ordinary Mommy Design

This dainty Felt and Sequin Snowflake  on Ordinary Mommy Design looks delightful – all you’ll need is a few sequins, felt, and some DMC floss.

Crochet Pumpkin Hat on Hopeful Honey

I am loving all the free tutorials out there for spooky Halloween Hats to make! Cozy little hats like these are perfect for chilly nights and they’re a low-impact costume to make and throw on.

This Crochet Baby Pumpkin Hat  on Hopeful Honey is simple and perfect for Halloween!

How cozy and sweet would a baby look sporting this hat and an orange blankie or onesie? So sweet! And better yet, you can hold onto your hat all through November for a fall theme!

Anna and Elsa Inspired Crochet Hats on Rick A Bam Boo

These sweet Anna and Elsa Inspired Crochet Hats on  Rick A Bam Boo  are adorable enough to keep you cozy every day.

I think they’d also look perfect with a little embroidered embellishment, maybe some Light Effects floss for a sparkly frozen effect?

Frankie Hat Pattern on A Chick With Sticks

This Frankie Hat Pattern  on A Chick With Sticks is another sweet idea that is perfect for embroidered embellishment – using a couple of shades of DMC floss and bits of felt.

Just a bit of customization and you could make this cute idea a zombie hat, too!

Monster Hats on Fleece Fun

These Fleece Fun  look like a super-adorable, easy stitch – using multicolored fleece or fleece and felt, you can craft something really cute for a little (or large) monster!

Ewok Hat on Tiny Purrs

One of my personal favorites is this awesome Ewok Hat on Tiny Purrs! Adorable on a baby, a child, or even the grown-up Ewok in your life.

I love how the length in the front can keep you especially cozy – perfect if there’s a chilly Halloween in your forecast!
