I know it's still January, but if you want to make a DIY Valentine's Day gift you had better get started right away!

Let's see what beautiful Valentine's Day things you can make with lovely patterns from the Pattern Patter Team!

These cute 1950s pillow covers from Roma's Maison would make a cute Valentine's gift!  The dancing poodles and hearts-n'-ribbons are very cute and festive.  And I do love poodles.

This lovely party set  from Vintage Needle Finds would make for a charming Valentine's Day party or special dinner. :)  Many other holidays are included.  Great for a little party for children or seniors, or anyone, really!

This sweet Cupid treat basket would be welcome on a desk or table in an office or waiting room.  Available from Vogue Vixens, and other holidays are also included.  He looks a little cheeky to me.

How about a sweet, Valentine-themed party apron from Purple Plaid Penguin?  Other holiday aprons are also included so you can have one for every season. :)  A truly glamorous hostess simply can't be without a seasonal apron!

Speaking of aprons, here's another cute one from Redcurlzs.  You can also add a heart-shaped pocket.  Of course, almost any apron can be a Valentine's Day apron if you use festive heart-print fabric. :)

Yet another festive and romance-filled apron from The Pattern Source!  The heart-shaped design of the pockets is replicated in the sweetheart design of the bib.  Bake up some special Valentine Treats?

A festive gift idea is this romantic bear with bow-tie and heart.  Yes, you can get a teddy holding a heart almost anywhere.. but one that is homemade is really a special gift.  From Lonestar Blondie.

Heart Pillow
An easy gift you can DIY with this cut-and-stuff pillow from Roma's Maison.

Or a cute, retro, heart-shaped throw pillow from Vintage Needle Finds?

Creative Circle 1695
Home is where the heart is, with this charming cross-stitch design from Cloe's Closet.  A truly memorable Valentine for someone you love. 

Of course, you can always make a sweet, homemade Valentine with some felt, lace, paper, and glue!
