stitched valentine treat bags are my fave

February 1, 2013

In the February issue of Martha Stewart Living, I’m quoted saying I’m stitching hearts onto pouches for my valentines (pinch me). Here’s the proof that I wasn’t making it up:
you are my fave: stitched valentine bags

To make your own you’ll need:
- muslin bags (I got these on Amazon)
- embroidery floss/twine/thread (whatever you have handy)
- needle

The instructions are pretty straight forward, thread your needle and start stitching. I printed the cross stitch pattern from here and followed this tutorial from Wild Olive for the hearts. They’re not perfect but it adds charm. At least that’s what I tell myself.
