A Purrrfect Valentine's Day

Monday, February 16, 2015

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!  This year we treated ourselves to the ultimate indulgence of cuteness: a vintage kitten-themed tea party complete with yarn balls and strawberry "mice".  There were several variations of the strawberries on Pinterest, and I just went with piping on some melted chocolate for the eyes (you can also use mini chocolate chips).  My mom and I enjoyed sewing the adorable little pair of felt mice from this pattern on Rhythm & Rhyme.  We made the cat brooches using a tutorial from Bloesem Kids, choosing patterned fabrics instead of the felt for the front.   The "Meow" hand-embroidered hoop in raspberry and pink is available for sale in my shop.  This sweet theme is also popular for girl's birthday parties so you could probably find some vintage cat and kitten birthday cards instead of the Valentine cards to add to the decor.  Hope your Valentine's Day was just as purrrfect!
