I realized my boys would need to hand out their classmates Valentine's on Friday as Valentine's Day falls on a Sunday this year. I love teaching the boys the need to tell people they are special and if we as moms don't teach them to be romantic who else will? So not having much energy at the moment I settled on something quick and easy, heart bags.
I love working with felt so I used a pattern and tutorial you can find -> HERE for the bag and a tutorial you can find -> HERE (this site rocks, get ready to stay a while) for the flowers. I started off hand stiching the bags but decided that due to the quantity I would machine stitch the rest.
For the tags I used muslin/calico and my copics and wrote my messages on them, I then tore them and stitched them onto the heart along with the flowers and leaves before putting the bags together. With the bag with the two flowers I got a little more creative and if you look closely you will see liitle pearl beads sewn into their centers.
What is going inside? I found these cute jelly bean hearts and am also wanting to add hair clips with some felt roses if I can find the time and energy.
Aren't the jelly beans great :-)
