Happy Valentine's Day

I hope everyone is having a good time, whether you celebrate the day of love or not. Valentine's is about being closer to the ones you love. That can be your significant other or your best of friends and family. I asked for pictures of costumers for Valentine's and here they are. For each picture I asked about how the costumes were made and how long it took. Not all the couples on here are dating or married, but all of them show their love of friendship and crafting! Enjoy!

Please enjoy part one of her advice on fabrics and their uses!
