Yep. I’m doing my taxes, folks. So, in an attempt to balance out all the negative energy around here I’m having a sale. On everything. All of the things at worthygoods textile are on sale. Just ’cause. Between this sale, the caramel in my coffee and my Pandora 80’s radio station, I’ve just given this previously-drudgey weekend a Dory-style makeover. Yep, Debbie Debb and I are singing the same song, “Look out weekend, cause here I come. Because weekends were made for fun.”

Take that tax paperwork monster.

I’m getting off-track here with the Princess Bride reference. Ahem. So! I’ve got a whole bunch of spoolishness coming your way in the form of a printable download.

Wait. You didn’t get enough sewing puns in my last post?

Well, have no fear, my dears.

Just click all that pun-i-liciousness and print it out. Grab your scissors, cut out the ribbon ‘strips’,  then wrap each around a wooden spool and secure for a most unique (and waaaay too simple to be this cute) Valentine.

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.

When did vintage spools get swoon-worthy? Now.

Often vintage spools are repurposed in a crafty manner.

This is not one of those times.
