Cloth - Quick Project - Fabric Valentine Heart Basket Filler
The house always looks so bare when the Christmas decorations are finally put away. Thankfully Valentine's Day is right around the corner. I don't really go crazy with decorating for Valentine's Day but I do like to put a few things here and there.
Most people have at least one "basket" around the house that they fill with either decorative balls or potpourri. This is a simple project to upgrade your basket with some red and pink cheer.
*Assorted Valentine fabrics (Remember you will need to cut a front and back piece.)
*Heart patterns in various sizes (I did a big one and a small one)
*Sewing machine (optional). I stiched mine using my sewing machine and a zig-zag stich for a little bit of a primitive feel but you could easily just stitch them up by hand.
No real instructions here just remember to leave yourself a hole so you can stuff the polyfill in!
