How I know her: She is the best friend of BT's high school friend's wife -- the same friend who introduced me to Kent, the first recipient of a Facebook project.
Have you heard about Valerie before on The Felt Mouse?: I don't think so -- but she is the "v" in this set of aprons.
The project: The project for Valerie was two-fold. One, she is due to have a baby next month (her first), so a special gift was in order. I made a little felt elephant
and paired it with an Aden + Anais sleeper bought on clearance at Target and a coordinating photo album.
But, since the project was intended for the Facebook friend -- not their offspring -- I decided I had to make something else just for Valerie. On occasion we say we should meet up to craft, as we live relatively close to each other. So, I made her a little pouch
I thought the fabric resembled an Eastern European design -- Valerie is proud of her Serbian heritage. I also tried my hand at painting a needle case -- try being the key word...
Best wishes to mama and baby, and maybe we can do that crafting day some day :)
Favorite of the day: Adorable for a 4th (or 40th) b-day celebration!
Working on: More Facebook gifts
