Looking for a project to stitch with the kids as a Valentine’s Day gift? Susan Penny has designed this pretty key fob just for you.
I wanted to design something that our youngest daughter could make and give her dad on Valentine’s Day. I have never really been into mass-produced cards, and have always felt that something hand-crafted, even if a few scribbles on a scrap of paper, is more of a treasure than something shop-bought. My love of stitching came from my mum’s patient teaching, and I now try to encourage my own children in the same way. Stitching from an early age will give children skills that will last a lifetime, but it is important that the projects they tackle are at the correct skill level for the child’s ability or they will get frustrated and give in before anything has been achieved. So, this pretty little key fob will be stitched again, with my help, by our youngest, hopefully giving her a sense of achievement and a great gift for Valentine’s Day.
