The Sweetheart Fabric Bundle is a collection of some of our very favorite fabrics. We created it in celebration of love and care of ourselves and each other. Gather a group of friends and make together. One bundle makes quite a few little items!

Use it to: 
+ Make fabric valentines - the recipient can use it as a bookmark or a little wall-hanging. A sweet memento of your love.
+ Create a little fabric envelope to house a love letter or painting.
+ Do a stitching meditation - simply take a fabric that is calling to you, thread your needle, take a few stitches and breathe. Focus on your heart.
+ Mend your favorite piece of clothing. Holes happen in our most beloved garments. Spend some time thinking about your favorite memories when wearing this clothing.
+ Sachets - with purchase of this bundle, you will receive a free copy of Kristine's Rosa Sachet project. They can easily be made in a range of sizes and styles. Fill them with lavender and cloves. (We will send you the PDF shortly).
