Red Felt Triple Heart Love Note Pocket by Rachel, Thinkoutsidethebox*

Hanging “pocket” hearts are a sweet gift for someone special. Rachel writes, “…Everything I create is done from scratch, freehand, and I never know what it will be until I am in it. This is just a basic heart shape; anyone can create their own or download an image or pattern of the internet. The heart is made from felt and stuffed with polyfil. This particular one was machine sewn but typically I hand sew with embroidery thread in the blanket stitch, makes it a bit more personal and handmade looking… The outer portion, the pocket, was created from a fabric remnant… I did not like the whole print so I cut out the heart prints, three of them, and sewed them together (sewing machine and then sewed the edges to create the pocket). I made it into a hanging ornament using thin ribbon and a button to finish it off and viola! The pocket adds a little something special, as it can hold a love note, some $ or a gift card, etc.”
