Simple homemade Valentine hearts
We've been making these simple calico necklaces for years. They're simple and affordable:
Buy 2 pieces of calico that work together. Adhere them together with "Stitch Witchery" or the like.
Using a heart-shaped cookie-cutter, trace heart pattern onto the fabric.
Cut the hearts out.
String a piece of raffia and a wooden bead on each heart.
Tie a not at the top so that the necklaces are easy for people to slip on.
Have fun! In a few years you'll have a great collection of 'em hanging around because you won't want to throw them out.
