Be My Valentine

I just packaged up my swap package but I snapped a few quick photos before wrapping it all up. I hope my swap partner likes it. I ended up using a pattern from the early 1950's which the instructions that went with patterns back then leave something to be desired so it took me a little time reading each step to try to figure out what the heck they were telling me to do. But, I finally figured it all out and really enjoyed making this pattern and I love the H back.

I hope my partner also enjoys the tuck-ins that I chose. The vintage/retro tuck-in are some adorable retro recipe cards and a recipe card box. I seriously wanted to keep these for myself but that wouldn't have been very nice. All of the other tuck-ins are both Valentine and kitchen related - heart shaped measuring spoons with measurements like "A Dash of Kindness", heart shaped cookie cutters, and pink chocolate chip pancake mix.
