Love Note Pocket Hearts

Hi, friends!  Today, I want to introduce you to a guest blogger who’s joining us all the way from Australia.  Her name is Clare and she blogs at Clare’s Craftroom.  She shared this adorable project with me and I thought you  might like to see and make it too…enjoy!

Hello and good morning to you all!  I am so happy to be here guest posting at One Artsy Mama .
Although we are not big on Valentine’s Day here in Australia I do love hearts!  These little ones are so quick and easy to make in any size and they have a little pocket for your love notes so you can send messages any time you like.  They also might be cute for popping in your little one’s lunch box with a sweet note from Mum.
The ones here are only about 2″ but you decide how big you would like yours and trace your heart shape onto cardboard.  There are 3 pieces of fabric ~ front , back and pocket.  The pocket piece has the top edge pressed down before sandwiching between between the front and back pieces.  Trace your heart shape on.
Stitch around leaving a gap for turning.

Cut out heart shape and clip and snip.

Turn right side out and stuff very lightly.  Neatly stitch the gap closed.
Pop a little note in the pocket.

These should take you 10 minutes to make tops.  So you can make a pile of them and everyone will know
you are just lovely !

As I don’t do Valentines, I give a donation each year to the Heart Foundation and this makes my heart feel really good.
Thanks so much, Clare, for sharing your heart project with us today!  I have to confess, this project was so cute, I couldn’t resist giving it a try!  Here’s how my first attempt turned out!  Eep, aren’t they adorable?!
Hugs & Glitter,
