It’s tough buying a valentine’s gift for an 18 year old girl. Usually I just get
some sort of bakery treats for breakfast and serve them on our special
vintage red glass dishes, which we use only on special occasions.
This year, since my daughter has been doing so much for me during my
recuperation, I wanted to do something a little more special.
I found the lovely shamrock necklace pictured below at Emerson Made and
got that for her. I didn’t really like the muslin pouch the necklace came in so
I made one of my own using vintage barkcloth with a pink satiny lining. I
couldn’t make it upstairs to my sewing machine so did the whole thing by
hand (which I really enjoyed).
I put the pouch over an I Love You flyer with tear off’s so she can take an
I Love You with her if she ever needs a little extra affection.
