STITCHED DROP CLOTH VALENTINE’s treat BAGs

STITCHED VALENTINE'S TREAT BAGS @placeofmytaste.com

I really got into the mood of making heart shaped things around here. Love is in the air…-ha…

Last month, around Christmas – I wrote a few posts, where I used the NOW very popular DROP CLOTH for my projects. Drop cloth is so inexpensive { you can get a huge chunk at Home Depot for $10 }and creativity is endless with it. I made my Christmas Wreath and my Holiday Pillow Covers  and just recently my Rosette Valentine Wreath out of drop cloth and I think they all turned out excellent and very decorative.

I was thinking about what to make for my kids friends and teachers for Valentin’s day and I thought making these

stitched Valentine’s treat bags

would make adorable homemade gifts.

Things you will need to make these darling bags:

- drop cloth

- embroidery floss, twine, thread { whatever you have at home}

-needle

- heart shape { cut out of paper }

-sharpie

- scissor

Okay.. I cut out about 3-4″ wide, long stripes of the drop cloth and I cut my long stripes in 3-4 pieces.

I folded one layer over to the other, so the  bottom of the bags would not have to be stitched.

I cut a heart shape out of paper and laid it on the drop cloth piece, than I painted the heart shape with my RED sharpie.

I repeated this step with each piece of drop cloth.

{You get a better picture here of what I meant by folding one piece over the other to save stitching on the bottom of the bags.}

So far its super easy, right?

Now on to the stitching part.

I gotta tell ya – this part took the most time of this project. But no worries, not too bad.

I stitched away while I was sipping on a cup of coffee during nap time  on a cold Saturday afternoon– it was a piece of cake and I actually enjoyed it.

Started stitching from the bottom of the bag and went little over half way with the stitches. I did the same thing on both sides.Then I stitched horizontal , across the bag, leaving some thread on booth sides to have  enough to tide the bag ,once the bag is filled with treat.

I filled these little bags with Hersey kisses for the teachers and with tattoos, craft items for the kids.

I always think of something homemade when it comes to giving. Something that was made with love is worth more than anything.

I think they would make perfect little gift bags for school friends, teachers even co workers!

You still have a few weeks left until Valentine’s Day, so get on the project and make something with love for those who you love.
