Valentines Day Sewing

Saturday, January 22, 2011

Earlier this week I worked on a few ready-made goodies for my Etsy shop. I wanted to create some gift pack undies, and decided to pre-wrap them in pretty, paper doilies! Voila! I hope my man gets me something yummy like this!


It has been a snowy, stormy few days here; très Canadien. Our little apartment has been freezing and I feel a little like Susanna Moodie in Roughing It In The Bush. We have literally been burning candles (and once, Dan's homework) for warmth as we really can't afford any more $200+ hydro bills. I am assured that one day we will look back on these days with fondness... When I am a famous handmade-lingerie designer, and Dan is Mechanic to the Prime Minister.
A girl can dream... for now I will keep my toque on!

  1. What a cute idea, using paper doilies as wrapping paper. Very cute. I hope you're warm again soon. Winter is getting on a bit now, I agree....

  2. Lush! I spotted these in your Etsy shop (which is firmly in my favourites) and was wondering why you hadn't blogged about them yet. Being cold really does suck, hope you warm up soon! I'm so ready for warmer weather in the UK too!
