Most girls -my own daughter included- have lots of these little
metal snap barrettes lying around and, if you happen to be a crafty
type, you probably also have some pretty wool felt at home, too. If so, in just
about 15 minutes you can make a couple of gorgeous Valentine’s heart barrettes and your daughter will be ready for the 14th.
I love crafting. Love it. But I am the queen of unfinished projects.
Time and time again I start something new instead of, say, putting the
binding on the sampler quilt I started two years ago. Needless to say, I
was excited to see the adorably easy Valentines Heart Barrettes
project on the purl bee the other day. (You know, so I could start
something new again.) Not just because the little barrettes are
gorgeous, but also because they really were so simple to make.
so easy, in fact, that my husband has had to convince me that it would
be a foolish idea to try to make a pair for every girl in our son’s
kindergarten class. Seriously, though, even though I have a newborn I
still think I could do it. And given that I like a challenge, I just
might try. -Stephanie
