Valentine’s Day is only a few days away and Ellie has requested that we make “Balendine’s” for all her friends. She’s at such a fun age right now; she’s constantly making me laugh. We love doing projects together, and I, of course, wanted to do something at least a little bit handmade.
Using heart shaped doilies, I made little pockets by sewing two hearts together back to back using the zig-zag stitch on my Sewing Machine.
Then we filled them with tissue wrapped goodies.
We closed them off with a ribbon, and after adding the gift tag…voila! Simple.
Her favorite job was crossing off names from the list as I wrote the gift tags…and she also let me know which kids play with each other. “Preston is Adam’s friend, mommy.” “Holly is only MY friend, not the other kids.” “I don’t like that other boy, he hits me.” (Hmmm…that one made me mad; I almost crossed the kid off the list! )
Happy Valentine’s Day a couple days early!
