Valentine Burlap Love Sacks

This is the cute craft I came up with as I woke up yesterday morning for our Other Meeting Activity in Relief Society. I think they are so cute! The little bags are burlap and filled with quilting badding (polyester fiber fill). Tied with hemp chord. That's it!

I cut 8 rectangles of burlap 10" x 5 3/4". Then I sewed a 1/2" seam along three of the sides. I trimmed the extra fabric of the corners so that the corners would be a little cleaner and turned the bag inside out. I used red acrylic paint to stencil on 3" letters that our Relief Society President cut out on her cricket. Then I cut a heart out of a note card and stenciled it in pink. I filled each bag with a handful of quilting badding and tied the top closed with a piece of hemp chord. 

Voila! A cute Valentine burlap Love Sack! Super cute, fast and easy!

We will also be having an exchange table and some finger treats for dessert. I can't wait to share this with our sisters!
