Seams like I’ve got my Valentines all buttoned up | Don’t be spoolish. Be mine.

What would Valentine’s Day be without a stack of eye-roll inducing, pun-laden notes?

Only worth the candy that came with the cards, that’s what.

textile don't be spoolish valentine blackened primitive spool mirror 2I love a good pun. Let’s be honest. I love the bad ones, too. So, I’ll be clear and just state that aside from the general lovey-mush, Valentine’s day  is my perfect combination of crafty and silly. This year I’ve been inspired to step away from the doilies and glue stick, though.

Biased against sewing puns this Valentines’?

Prepare to get needled.

Before you roll your eyes at this thread, check out my inspiration. Studio Carta has put together a clever idea here with some simple ingredients: wooden spools, paper and twine. I’m taking a bit of the romance out of this notion and putting my own punny twist on it. Darn, you knew this was coming, right? Seriously. Well, not seriously, just seriously silly. A hem.

You can find a stash of spools at the shop of course and head on over here for a cringe-worthy sewing pun thread. And if you make some? TELL ME ABOUT IT. I’ll be back with an update and my finished Valentines, promise. Come back and read about it.

You’ll be sew glad you did.

Knot kidding.

don't be spoolish, be my Valentine
