Warm Hearts : :

Earlier today my two youngest and I decided to do a little crafting together. What we made, we are calling "warm hearts" -- named by Jacob and loved by all of us. This turned out to be the perfect project, for this snowy day, so I had to share! Here is what we did...

warm hearts

What you'll need -- basic sewing supplies (sewing machine, scissors, needle, thread), scrap fabric, wool felt scraps, and flax seed, ours is a combination of flax and a bit of sesame seed. (You can also add lavender, chamomile, or any other aromatic ingredients that you would add when making a sachet.)

making warm hearts

After the kids picked out their fabrics (warning : : this can take a while : ), we cut two large hearts from the wool felt and then a smaller heart from the fabric. I first, zigzag stitched the fabric heart to the top of one of the wool felt hearts. Next, putting the two wool felt hearts right sides facing, I stitched around the hearts, leaving a one inch opening.

Simply turn the fabric right side out and begin to fill with your seed and aromatics through the opening until you reach your desired fullness.

I let the kids do this all by themselves, they loved it!

Finally, stitch the opening closed -- by hand or with your sewing machine. Warm in microwave 30 seconds to 1 minute.

And, voila! You have a warm heart for your little one to snuggle with.

Perfect for snow days and Valentine's day!
