Normally, I am not ga-ga about Valentine's Day or Valentine's Day decorations...BUT, blog land and Pinterest have given me lots of ideas and I just had to try a few!
My first Valentine's Day project inspiration came from Adrianne @ Happy Hour Project
If you click on the link and check out her blog, she has the pattern that I used and really good step by step directions. Here is what I did...
First, I printed and traced the pattern from Adrianne
Then I used my favorite tool to cut out the pieces.
And I used my 3-hole punch to make the holes
Fold up each of the little fingers and
tape the yarn on the bottom of the inside of the bowl
Then start weaving. Adrianne was much better at taking pictures and explaining the weaving process...I sat down with a movie on (Pride and Prejudice!), went to town weaving, and totally forgot to take any pictures until I was done!
I finished the inside and bottom with felt hearts to cover up the cardboard
My basket is a tad bit lopsided, but still cute! Now I need to get some Hershey Kisses to put inside...
