With Valentine's day coming I'm in the mood for holiday themed stuff, but buying a bunch of things isn't in my budget. This was a cheap and easy way to get in the spirit & give my little lovey some new play things. I just used some scrap fabric that had texture (minky, corduroy & velour) and leftover ribbon I had from the $1 section at Target, so the $0 cost was very budget-friendly I cut out some heart shapes, added a ribbon loop, stuffed them & then ladder stitched the opening closed. To add a little interest for baby, I put a bell in each of the pink hearts & some crinkly cellophane in the corduroy one.
She loves grabbing at dangling toys right now & to make them even more versatile, I added some snaps to a piece of twill tape so they could be attached to just about everything: her play mats, saucer toy & stroller just to name a few.
Fun, practical and free. Big win all around!
