Project

Stenciled Fabric Valentines

This unique take on a traditional Valentine's Day card comes from Lena Corwin, author of "Made by Hand." Use her PDF and stencil film to hand cut the design for a truly handmade valentine. 

Introduction

"I made this Valentine using tape as a stencil on a small silk screen," Corwin says. "I love bright-red ink on natural colored linen. The motif was fun and spontaneous. I like the idea of giving a cut of fabric as a Valentine 'card' instead of paper."
