Valentine's Day gift for Teachers

Valentine's Day
is just around the corner and here is what I'm giving to my children's teachers.
It's an easy project. Took me five minutes to make. Had all the supplies on hand. I'm done. Check.

It's a little door-hanger-thing.

Just cut a heart shape out of paper. Trace it on to the wrong side of your fabric. Cut out two hearts (I just layered my fabric and cut them both out at the same time.) With wrong sides together, sew around the heart, leaving about a 2-inch opening on one of the straight edges of the heart. Pull inside out. Stuff it as much as you can with pillow stuffing. Hand sew it shut using a coordinating color of thread. To get the ribbon through - use a needle with a large eye (I used a "chenille" needle.) Make a loop. Tie a knot and a bow. Bam. You're done. You can attach a cute little tag if you want -which is what I plan to do sometime before V-day.
