My daughter needed 41(!) Valentines to hand out this year.  So I looked through a few catalogs and really liked those felt lollypop covers they had.  However I was not going to pay $1 per Valentine.  Plus I didn't want to make anything too labor intensive because I knew my daughter would get tired of them after about a dozen.  (I am sure you know how that goes.)  So we cut out 82 felt hearts (felt was from stash, woo-hoo!) and paired them up.  I sewed them together, leaving a tiny hole at the bottom and a larger one at the top. 

Here's what they looked like after chain piecing them all:

(Who knew they'd make such a cute garland...)

We wrote quick note using a sharpie and stuffed them with Tootsie Pops and here is the finished result:


All 41 of them:


Yes they are mismatched.  Smiley  My daughter likes them and we are done 3 days before having to bring them to school.

We are in the process of switching over to cloth diapers.  Would love some advice, hint, tips.   Will swap for diapers!
