See I can Craft... Well kind of!!

So I had the urge to create something today- but Maia was sleeping and I couldn't go to the store. So I went through some of my old fabric scraps and decided to make a V-day table runner( I have been looking for one, but couldn't find a cute one to buy), so it made sense to try and make a cute one!
I am not a patient seamstress, but I decided to try my best on this project (I even pulled out the iron)! I made a huge mess, burned myself, but had a nice relaxing time just doing something that I love to do- CREATING!

The Finished Product- What do you think?
I was limited on my resources, but it's a shabby chic kind of Valentine look and I love it! (it's also the same material that we used to make all of Maia's Nursery set, so maybe it can just go in there when I'm done) And the bottom and the hearts were burlap, and I absolutely love the mix of the two!

Then I went to DI to buy some candy dishes and ended up finding these 3 awesome pieces- The Gold 2 tiered tray was 2 bucks, the small bowl was. 50, and the candle holder and plate (that I just am using as a cute cake stand candy dish- those were 1.00 a piece! For a total of 4.50-
Good Finds I'd say!

And this little girl is tempted by those candy dishes, so I don't know how long they will be there!!

I am no professional- but I had fun doing it and That's all that matters, right?

So cute! I love it! I never have any luck when it comes to DI. I love table runners, but I am kinda picky about them, it never occurred to me to make my one. That makes so excited now!
