The Love Bandit

pelloninlove

Valentine’s  Day is nearly upon us, but there’s still time for a few last minute projects! We’re head over heels for the adorable little ‘bandits’ featured in Rachael Gander’s latest project and think that List Ruble’s postcards are the perfect way to send some love to your far-away friends! Take a peek:).

Raccoons in Love
Bring the wild into your world with a friendly bandit on your sofa. He’s not a burglar but he’s sure to steal your heart! The pattern includes options for hand-stitching, adding machine stitched embellishments, and a no-sew-appliqué version. Rachael Gander of Imagine Gnats created a super easy tutorial for these fabulous pillows, so it’s a great project for any level. Make one for Valentine’s and proudly display it year round!
