Valentine Pennie Pockets

I joined the Heart to Heart valentine swap hosted by Sarah I remembered loving Happy Zombie"s Christmas Pennie Pockets shown here I thought I'd like to make them for the swap. (Happy Zombie made some for Valentine's Day and hers are gorgeous btw.) I had so much fun making these! I used a vintage pillowcase , vintage buttons, and the rest of the fabric was from my stash. Except for that bright blue fabric.

I had to go to JoAnn's for something .(any little reason and I'm there) This was my first time making a fabric yo yo and I think that was my favorite part! When I was finished with them I mounted them on some card stock covered with Tracy Porter paper.

I hope my swap partners like them. I can't wait to see what they make!


  1. Those look gorgeous... I can't wait to see the swap packages, I'm in Sarah's swap too!
