You know what I love about Valentines Day? I love those adorkable little sayings you see on kids cards. You know the ones – there is a picture of train and it says “I choo-choo choose you”. Its like the one day of the year you can be completely corny and its absolutely cute and acceptable.
So I was keeping that in mind when I was thinking of the kids Valentines Day presents. My kids still are in the stage where they loved stuffed animals – even my boys – they have an older sister and she kind of is the ring leader. Whatever she likes they like. They loved the little fox I made for their cousin for Christmas so I thought why not make each of them a stuffed animal. I have so many fabric scraps from my aprons and I have two throw pillows that I keep thinking I should give to Good Will but then I think well I might use them somewhere (seriously I’ve been holding onto these pillows for probably 5 years just because I might use them – hello hoarder). I finally decided now was the time to sacrifice them and use their stuffing – it actually felt really good!
So here is what I came up with:
Each one will get its own adorkable homemade card
For Emma: Owl Always Love you!
For Jack: We Whaley Love you!
For Trey: You Are Turtley Awesome!
For Liam : We Love You Tons!
This was a really fun way to use up scraps – I didn’t have to spend an extra dime on their V-Day gifts this year. Here are the patterns I used to make them.
The patterns are completely free. I changed the sizing on a couple of them and I added a felt heart to each of mine to make them a little extra special- after all each of these kiddos does hold a piece of my heart.
Once again Happy Valentine’s Day everyone and oh to my hubby if you are reading this:
I think we make a fine pair 🙂
