Embroider a Valentine This Thursday!
Getting a box of conversation hearts can be complicated. While the sentiment of a candy gift is always appreciated, the chalky little treats can’t really compare to a luscious dark chocolate truffle. And the purple ones?! With a flavor described by experts at Candy Blog as “foul bitter grapes,” they’re simply inedible. Fun note: while the recipe hasn’t changed since 1902, the sayings change each year to reflect the times. (We must have missed the 1998 featured heart, “You Go, Girl!)
The thing is, they’re so darn cute! That’s why we’re taking all of the cuteness (and none of the chalky aftertaste) for this month’s Crafty Hour and making some sweet embroidered conversation hearts that’ll last forever.
You can make your heart say anything. Anything. No judgements here! We’ll have some pins and some string so you can make yours wearable or into a hangable ornament. Not to mention that we’ll send you home with some Valentine cookie goodness from Alameda High’s Sweets and Treats Club. RSVP on the Modern Mouse Facebook page so we can have enough candy-colored felt for you to make a whole box full of hearts, and in the meantime, “Chill Out, Be Good, and Fax Me!”
