Yeah, I know it's really Valentine's.  It was a 30 Rock reference, darn you!
Anyway, I'm quite proud that I made these in a timely fashion this year.  Usually holidays like this sneak up on me, and then I'm stuck with 10 yards of heart print fabrics and shamrock fabric for another year. 

This is my favorite.  I would keep it if it didn't squish my ladies so.
It's textured white + blue polka dot knit with some pink heart print knit.  I gave it lots of exposed seams and a pouch pocket.


More hearts!  The neck opening closes with hook and eye tape that I hand dyed hot pink.  Tootin' my own horn, indeed!
I'm of the opinion that if we all wore heart shaped pockets, the world would be a better place.




Pardon my mug.
Pink + black skull knit rendered into a kitty ear hoodie with lace!




This one is some very soft and sheer (can't tell 'cause I'm wearing a tank underneath) pink sweater knit.  I'd eat this stuff if I could.  It's like cotton candy.  The yoke is thermal knit with skully heads + hearts and lace!  Looks better on someone that isn't me, haha.




More fabric that I could eat.
This one is burnout knit.  The hearts are sheer! 
I trimmed it all over with ruffled organza.  I put two whopping houndstooth buttons on there for good measure. A little bit of ruching on the bust and presto!

Wow! I'm not terribly into Valentine's day, but those pieces are lovely! And they're not overly "seasonal" so you could wear them any time of the year. Amazing work Cheesy

Haha, I didn't even notice that in the title until you said something. That aside, THAT IS SO CUTE! Oh man, Valentine's is in two days and I haven't made anything V-day related. I must get on that. Good job. You never cease to amaze, Smarmy.

Excellent work.

The second piece makes me think of mint chocolate chip ice cream.

Great job breaking up the patterns and placing buttons.

Thanks for the tutes tabs.
