This Valentine's Day, make your heart with your hands. Make It By Monday has curated a few unique solutions for sending your special someone a gift of heart-shaped sweetness this Valentine's Day.
For my project this week, I wanted to do something that would surprise my valentine. So over a few days, I whipped up a big bag of sewn hearts, which I plan to stash all over the house—in his sock drawer, eyeglass case, lunch pail, laptop case, car, shoes, the medicine cabinet, maybe even the refrigerator. I like the idea that all day long, my valentine will get a special reminder of his valentine and her handmade love.
