Happy Galentine's Day!

In Norway we are getting more familiar with Valentine's Day. But I don't know if you know something about Galentine's Day. Actually it is the day before Valentine's, and it's celebrating lady friendship. I made a card for all my sewing friends. And as a present to you, I'll give you a tutorial on how to make it.

As  Island Batik Ambassadors we are given fabric to make something for this day, and for months to come. My box for this year hasn't arrived yet, but I had some small pieces left from earlier projects. So I made this beautiful card. So happy to use all the different seams on my sewing machine.

A nice project to use all my tiniest scraps. Sewn on a foundation.

I made me a paper template to cut the heart

I I sewed the heart to a background and batting
Aurifil Thread is great to use in all seams here
Sewed the binding to the front, turned around and glued it to the back
Glued a card on the back side, and sewed two rounds on the edge
The finished card. Happy Galentine's!

Here you can see what the other Island Batik Ambassadors made for Galentines Day. And stay tuned for more eye candy the next weeks.
