~ A burlap bag...found the at Beverly's for $2.99
~ A piece of fabric
~ A heart template
~ Embroidery thread
~BattingThe first step is to trace the heart template onto the backside of your fabric with a pencil.
Find where you want to position the heart on the bag (starting lower is better), and starting at the point of the heart sew using a backstitch. You will want to make sure that you have a large enough knot at the end so that it doesn't pull through the burlap, and be careful not to stitch too close to the edge of the fabric.
What I really love about this project is that these bags can be used in so many ways! While they are the perfect size to hold cupcakes in crowns as favors, there are lots of other way to use too. Since the bags come with a plastic liner you can fill them with a variety of things...including flowers or a plant for centerpieces, to hold treats in as gift bags for guests, favor bags for a wedding or party, to give a Valentine's Day present in, to hold utensils, or (like me) to have on my desk filled with items such as pencils, scissors, etc... And just think if you changed out the fabric, or the shape of the heart...it can be used at any time of year. I am sure you will be seeing these bags in a photo shoot again!
