Valentine Inchies

These are some of the Valentine Inchies that I made for my Fabric in Altered Arts yahoo group. They all started out with a strip of Peltex that was 1.5" X 12" that was covered with fabric, both front and back. After stitching along each side of the strip I cut them into 1.5" lengths which made them 1.5" X 1.5". They are called "inchies" but we make them a little larger since it makes it so much easier to work on them with a sewing machine. The words "love" and "kiss" were stitched before the other two sides were finished with a zig zag stitch. The lips were printed on a piece of inkjet fabric and that fabric became the front fabric for those inchies. As you can see, buttons were added to some and the little fabric heart with the rhinestone was cut from a piece of fabric backed with a fusible and just ironed right onto the inchie. These have been swapped out and it's now time for the crows to be swapped out and fly off to their new homes!
