Hug Me Pocket Hearts


An E-A-S-Y gift to make with your friends, neighbors or even your grand children! Perfect stocking stuffer or gift for those who you want to remind of your love and support. All they have to do put their hand in their pocket and feel their little Hug Me Pocket Heart!


Supplies:

  • Heart stencil or cookie cutter

  • Pencil

  • Two 3 inch felt pieces

  • Scissors

  • Tacky glue or glue gun and glue sticks

  • Polyester fiberfill or fabric scraps


Directions:

  1. Using a heart stencil or a cookie cutter trace your heart onto the felt. Cut out two identical hearts.

  2. Place the hearts together and glue closed leaving a 1 inch gap to stuff your polyester fiberfill in.

  3. When stuffed glue your opening shut.

The above directions are for felt and glue but as you can see in my picture I have used flannel and I simple sewed the seam on the outside letting the edges fray - making it very simple and quick. Whatever your skill level these will be fun to make with these simple directions.

It’s that easy!!
