DIY: Valentines Day Charms

Image source: I Fluently Speak Fashion
Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Just thought I'd like to share a DIY that a friend of mine made as gifts to her Valentine(s) - it was just so sweet. Apologies in advanced that the steps are a tad confusing, and the pictures of low quality - does anyone want to guess where I took the photos? 
You will need:
- Coloured Felt
- Ribbon
- Needle and thread
- Scissors
- Cotton Stuffing
Start by cutting out two pieces of felt into heart shapes. If you want, you can embroider the name of your Valentine onto the surface of one, or both sides of the heart.
Cut out 10 cm of ribbon, fold it in half and sew the ribbon onto one surface of the heart. Once this is done, place the hearts back-to-back and blanket stitch them together, stopping halfway to add a desired amount of stuffing (until plump). Then finish off the stitching and you are done!
How very lucky these people were. A special mention to Jess for letting me "observe" you making these.
Once again, Happy Valentine's Day. xx

Most probably the only beach-worthy day during my school break:

The ocean waves rolling in and out in a distant rhythm.
 A meetup of t2v - a mark of three years past:
t2v cupcakes.
Just to blow out the candle.
Quite possibly the best burger. Ever. At least to me it was.
Cafe Lights.
 Night Life:
After having a walk along the beach at night.
Australia Day Fireworks:
As I work around with all the stress and workload that is my final year of schooling, I just want to share some snippets of some (of the other) things I got up to during my six week break. My way of giving an apology for the absence from posting I suppose (I'm sorry). xx
