5 of the Best: Handmade Valentine Projects

Despite being quite partial to a cute heart motif or two I will admit to not being a huge lover of Valentine's Day. It's one of those "holidays" which is too commercialised for my taste. Having said that, I've seen so many cute 'heart' and 'love' themed things online recently I just couldn't resist compiling this list of some of my favourites. They can all be made at home, the patterns/tutes are all free and they would be suitable for any time of year, but would make especially nice gifts for February 14th, if that's your thing.

The Pinterest links have broken, but until I come back to fix them, you can follow the links
1. Equation fingerprint art tutorial from Manmade DIY
4. Free hairclip / brooch pattern and tutorial download by Kim Layton on Everything Etsy
5. Gorgeous handmade socks - the pattern is free from Devon Clement on Ravelry - this comes in adult and child sizes and can be worked cuff-down or toe-up.

I'll be back tomorrow with my WIPs and Books update, but before I go a quick reminder that there are just a few days left to enter the Unravel ticket prize draw - you can find all the details here. Good luck!   


  1. The first pin has to be favourite, such a cute idea. I also wanted to say I've been really enjoying your pinterest posts! I really suck at using pinterest, the only way I seem to be finding decent things to do or make is through your posts, so thanks again!! xxx

  2. Great ideas... thanks so much for the links...and especially for the little heart pattern :)x

  3. Love the heart socks....very cute!

  4. Love the idea with the finger prints. How unusual. x
