Well, it sort of looks like LOVE, doesn’t it?
I sewed 20 of these little heart-shaped felt play cookies for my son’s friends for Valentine’s Day. I really like how they turned out. They came together very easily using felt and fleece scraps I already had on hand. I really didn’t want to hand out candy, or have to go buy anything, so this is what I came up with.
Thank goodness his class size is small this year!
I cut all the shapes one day, then did the sewing on another day. It probably took about 3-4 hours total. It could have been faster if I had used a marker to make the sprinkles, or perhaps glued on sequins, instead of using thread. But I know that most of his friends have younger siblings, so I wanted it them to be drool/chew proof.
I didn’t include a card with them (most of his friends can’t read yet). I just put them in simple white mailing envelopes with the “TO:” written by me and the “FROM:” written by my son. My kids have been playing with the cookies nonstop since I made them, and I think that just putting them in and out of the envelopes over and over has been half the fun.
Happy Valentines Day everyone! I hope you enjoy a nice long 3 day weekend (and maybe get some sewing or gardening done, too!).
