Sew, Mama, Sew! and JCasa's Something Special Vday Card tutorial! 

So as I was traveling through the 'crafty' blogosphere (as I am known to do), and I encountered two delightful entities, the website Sew, Mama, Sew! and JCasa's Jennifer's handmade blog tutorial for a special kind of correspondance.

Imagine what kind of a wonderful world (or VD day...oh, uhm I meant Valentine's day) it would be to get your 'love notes' like this!!

JCasa's Something Special Handmade Card

If you go to Sew, Mama, Sew! you'll see an exceptional high quality tutorial that clearly illustrates step by step procedures to simply make both this fabric envelope and the 'love note'.

Better yet, as part of their February True Love Series, if you try your hand at one of JCasa's fabric envelopes and cards before February 12th and post it on the Sew, Mama, Sew! forum you can win one of these awesome prizes!!

Regardless, its just so much fun (and inspiring) to check out all the versions that have already been posted on the Forum!

I think I may have to try one!!!

After you make the basic card + envelope as a foundation piece you can then embellish, embroider, quilt, print… Do something to make it unique! Mix things up, and personalize your card to make it the perfect something for your special someone.

I love these handmade valentines,...they remind me of my favorite V-day...When my lovely wife to be made a string of complex, involved, scavenger hunt type valentines.

Ooh Im too late for V day, but I want to try this. It actually reminds me of my sophomore year in high school, in French class our assignment was to make a holiday card using French phrases and I made my card out of an old tee shirt that I folded and stuffed with cotton and embroidered Joyeux Noel on it. Souer Salvator, was in shock as I was not the most dedicated student in her class.
