Little puffy hearts

Happy Valentine's to my boys.

Handmade Puffy Heart Pins to wear today.

Share the love, friends, and have a fun day!

And if you'd like to make your own Puffy Heart Pin...

Place two pieces of fabric right-side together and freehand cut out your heart shape, (roughly 2"x2".)  Sew the hearts together with an 1/8" border, leaving an opening from the bottom point to about 1" up one side.  Turn the heart inside out and fill with wool roving, cotton balls, or your fill of choice.  It would be easy to add some lavender at this point if you wished.  Stitch the opening shut.  Sew the pin back onto the heart.

Give your heart to someone you love, pin it on their sweater, and watch them head off bearing a little bit of your love into their day.
