Perfect gift for teachers, friends and co-workers. DIY bag for Valentine’s Day to put your treats into them, made with love!


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 Coversand 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 had and idea:

DIY bag for the treats!

I think they 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}


– heart shape {cut out of pape }


– scissor

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

Then I folded one layer over 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, then 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 it’s super easy, right?

Now on to the stitching part.

I have to tell you – 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 DIY bag and went little over half way with the stitches. I did the same thing on both sides.
Then I stitched horizontally, across the bag, leaving some thread on booth sides to have enough to tie the bag once it’s filled with the treats.

I filled these little bags with Hersey kisses for the teachers and with tattoos and 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. Like a DIY bag! 😉
