Here’s a fun and easy little craft that you can do with your kiddos to get you in the Valentine’s Day mood.
Grab lots of fun fabric!
Grab your bestest girl. Isn’t this sweet, mother and daughter creating together!?!?! Let me be real for just a second…. This is after we got in a huge fight because I wanted her to pull out her sewing machine and sew with her momma. She went on to inform me that sewing is sooooooo stupid! Good times!!!! Once I got her in my sewing room and locked the doors we made a heart template. We folded the fabric in half and then traced the heart onto the wrong side of the fabric.
Before we started sewing the two hearts together we added a little twine in between the two pieces of fabric with a little sticking out the side.
If I can get her to sit still and start a craft she really enjoys it. It’s just getting her to sit still long enough to get started. She is so super creative and has all sorts of great ideas, however she would much rather be out climbing trees, running around with all the neighborhood kids, and building forts. Love this girl.
When you sew the two pieces of fabric wrong sides together make sure to leave a 2 inch opening to turn the heart inside out. Cut excess fabric off around the heart.
Turn hearts right side out and iron.
Hope you have a day full of love and laughter! xoxoxo Angela
oh and P.S. Sewing is soooooo not stupid!
