Heart to Hands

Aren't these adorable! I spent late afternoon and evening making these four cuties. I missed a friend's birthday in February, so one of these is going to her very soon. I wonder which color she'd prefer?

Next week is retreat time with my quilting buddies and I'd love to make one for each of them. We'll see! :-)

This is a free pattern from The Pattern Basket. I've been wanting to make some for awhile and today was the day. I used Walnut Litter (finely ground walnut shells) from Pet's Mart to fill them.

They really make me smile! :-)

Lovely, absolutely lovely! So what'd you put in them? Enquiring minds want to know! lol Thanks for the link. Such a great idea. Have a wonderful weekend!

Carole said...

Never mind about what'd you put in them! Geez, my brain is engaged yet. I automatically thought "Oh I can fill these babies up with goodies, like chocolat, needles etc" Off to get a latte going! I need caffeine!

Nancy said...

They made me smile too. And I printed off the pattern. These would make cute gifts for a retreat with some special friends I'm going on next year. Never too early to start gathering together goodies for the door prizes I'm assembling.

These are way too cute! I'm going over to get the pattern right now! I need to make a belated birthday gift too. This will be perfect!

I need to make a "leaving office" gift for my board members in North Star Quilters guild by the December meeting. I saw these on someone else's blog - can't remember whose - and figured these would be perfect! Thanks for the reminder. Who know where I put the pattern the first time I printed it off, so now I'm printing it off again.
