Since Valentine's Day was coming up I wanted to make a bunch of hearts so I could do the same thing for my girls. Well, one daughter as the older one wanted to do it for her boyfriend. :)
Who wouldn't love finding little stuffed hearts that say, I love you! through out their day?
Cut two pieces of fabric large enough to fit your desired sized heart on. Put the the right sides together, fold the square in half and trace the heart. You can use a stencil or just free hand it. Turn the fabric so the wrong sides are together and stitch the heart together leaving an open for stuffing.
After doing a few hearts I discovered that it was much easier to leave the bottom point of the heart open for stuffing. If you don't have a sewing machine you could hand stitch your hearts.
(**Also, a little up-cycling tip......save old pillows to use as batting for your stuffy projects.)
When she came home from school she was beaming when she showed me the hearts that she found. Seeing how much joy it brought her I am definitely going to keep it up during the year.
Now go on and share the love and Happy Crafting my friends.
