Basket of Hearts

What is a better decoration for Valentine’s Day than a cute basket of homemade hearts!  These cute little hearts I found on Pinterest.  They looked so cute and easy so I thought why not give them a try, right?

These are really very simple to make.


  • Fabric 1/4 yard of each different style of your choice
  • One bag of polyester stuffing or wool stuffing.
  • Sewing Machine and thread


  • Buttons
  • Lace
  • Ribbon
  • Flowers
  • Etc.


  1. Pick up several different types of fabrics (your choice of 3-4  different  fabrics ) 1/4 of a yard each.
  2. Cut out 2 hearts of each (I made mine at 4″)
  3. With right sides together, sew around heart leaving a small space open to turn project right side out.
  4. Turn right side out.  I like to iron mine so the seams are pressed.
  5. Take your stuffing and stuff the heart to the fullness that you desire.
  6. Stitch close the open area where you stuffed the heart.
  7. Fun part now… you can add buttons, ribbon, lace, flowers, etc.

I created 10 hearts that filled up my medium size basket.

There you have it… a cute Valentines decoration for your home!  Have fun creating!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
