So I decided to put 20 minutes to use with some fabric and an old, unflattering sweater that's been in my closet for years. I've had an idea going around in my head for about a week now.
I cut a heart shape in the sweater and the fabric and just stitched them together. I left a little hole at the top, stuffed my little heart and then closed everything up.
Sweater side of heart
I liked it, but felt something was still missing. Combine my love of buttons with trying to fit this in 20 minutes (I went over a little) and ta-da!
Pin It Now!
I was going to put this in a Valentine's Day bag for one of the kids (it's small, fits in the palm of my hand), but I'm thinking I may just hold onto it for myself. This was 20+ minutes well-spent because afterward, I felt much better than I had before. And I think that's exactly what crafts should do for us.
