I’ve never been a fan of the ridiculous consumerism behind Valentine’s day and “traditional” romantic gifts like flowers, chocolates and store-bought cards are such an impersonal waste of money that when I do take part in the silly holiday of love I prefer to create something handmade from my quirky little heart.
Take a page from this Refashionista’s book of romance and whip up a wacky little gift from the heart with The DIY Take my Breath Away Valentine’s gift + free template!
Even though I’m not at all a fan of the silly consumerist day of romance the obvious choice for February’s Refashion Challenge is Valentine’s Day. So get refashioning those V-Day gifts and inevitable date night outfits and share your lovey dovey projects with the Gone Thrifting group!
