Amanda Jane Brown's Valentine Chevron Heart
In other words I was thinking I had it covered! The only problem, I guess I didn't know exactly what a Chevron Pattern should look like so I used both the small and big part of the template and didn't overlap them to continue the pattern all the way across the heart. Needless to say, my heart looks a little more like "stripes" than it looks likes "chevrons."
At the end of our projects, D's definitely looks more like a Chevron Heart (even though she used both the small and big templates-at least she carried the pattern to the end) and mine not so much.
We joked that maybe we should Pin this project to the "Failed Project Page on Pinterest." Of course, we also decided that five year old B's project; using the foam board-minus the heart cut out, might have been the best creation of the day.
While the project might have been an epic fail, it didn't stop us from having a fun afternoon laughing at ourselves and feeling proud of our creative attempts. Mine is hanging from the front door even though it's not perfect. Guess I figure no one but me knows that it was suppose to be a Chevron Heart, they think it's just a pink and white stripped heart. Plus I saved about $35 over the one I saw last week at a cafe in town!
Our next project plan is for an adorable Carrot for Spring!
