Valentine’s Day Gift Idea – Made with Evolon & Love!
LOVE MAYBE IN THE AIR THIS FEBRUARY – BUT NO-ONE LIKES A DRAUGHT
With so many of us trying to keep warm this winter, why not make your home extra cosy with a colourful draught excluder?
We used a piece of Evolon (which had previously been dyed a gorgeous shade of dark blue) to make the basic sausage shape, but a remnant could work well, or even the leg from an old pair of trousers! The letters and hearts were also cut from a piece of Evolon which, as it doesn’t fray or require any hemming, is ideal for this type of project.
We made templates for the lettering by printing the words ‘Home’ and ‘Heart’ using a font called Marker Felt (size 200pt) but reduced the size to 125pt for the rest of the text. After carefully cutting out the paper templates, we traced the letters on to the Evolon, before colouring them using transfer paints.
Of course, with Valentine’s Day fast approaching the lettering could represent the names of a happy couple or saying of your choice for that ‘personal touch’.
An ideal gift to keep someone you love warm and toastie this winter! To order Evolon, please visit our online shop.
