Cozy Hearts.

I have been sewing a few little Valentine's Day things for the boys as I have time this week. They always love little pillows that they can easily fit into a fort or tent, so I made a few using some "I Love You" fabric and red felt that I had in my fabric stash.

They are super easy to make - just cut out whatever size and shape of heart you want (front/back), sew around edge with right sides in - leaving a few inches open to reverse and stuff. Then just hand stitch the last bit closed! I used one full felt sheet per heart for my cutouts, so they are small enough to cuddle but big enough to lay on!

What a great idea! My daughter has been asking for a car/travel pillow. What did you stuff them with? I think I will try to make these. I have a lot of poly stuffing (not very natural I know, but it's left over from years ago). I guess that could work. Do you have any better ideas?

Thanks for the great idea!

I was going to make a teddy bear but I think I'm running out of time now. This looks a little easier and is very cute. Thanks for the idea.

Yes, thanks, that's a very good idea!

tiff said... love shaped pillows...and you can never have too many pillows for fort building and tents and snuggles.

you are such a creative mama...i love the bean bags too! i need to take a step backwards and remember to do all these fun things even if the boys' are getting older!

happy heart day!
