Scrap! Fabric Friday

If you search  the word valentine in the upper left hand corner of my blog you will see I love to make projects for Valentine's Day.  There are even some I forgot about.  Seriously.
This was a scrappy heart I made last year.  You can read about it HERE.  You can't have too many hearts this time of year.  Right?  This was a really fun and fast project that I machine quilted myself (a perfect size for anyone).
I do love 2.5" squares and try to use them as often as I can in projects.  Seeing these red bits brings back good memories of other projects, some of them from years back.  I like to save 2.5" scraps.  For me, that is the smallest size I save.  Otherwise, it just gets overwhelming for me.
You can't go wrong with red.  Dip into your scraps and see what you can come up with for Valentine's Day.

Adorable!
I just found some darling valentine fabric in my stash. I have no idea how it got there. Whenever I bought it, I still love it.
Maybe I have an elf infestation who come and leave cute fabric, that's what I'm going to tell my family when they get too nosy.

Very cute Nanette! I'm impressed that you save scraps that little -- the older I get, the more careless I get about throwing them away. SO much fabric, so little time LOL!
