Maddie is pretty excited about Valentine's Day. Of course, she's pretty excited about any holiday. Starting yesterday, she has been wishing us "Happy Valentine's Day!" at least five times a day.
So decorations are definitely necessary. I started out with a simple sewing project for her.
Felt hearts, made of two sizes of felt hearts and some buttons. Easy, right? No patterns, no instructions needed.
Easy for a little one to sew.
My little valentine helped tape these under our wall of love.
And yes, that's my simple sewing project that Maddie is standing on. I had an abundance of red felt this year (left over from a miscalculation on a Christmas project!) So I made a heart version of the pillow I talked about at Halloween here.
We also had some leftover space that seemed a little bare after our Christmas de-decorating. So we valentines-ed it up. Maddie used a bingo dabber on some paper hearts to help liven the place up.
It is still a good two weeks from Valentine's day, so I'm sure we'll be working on some more heart-themed stuff around here!
