Heart Socks

There is no steadfast rule that says Valentine’s Day gifts have to be red or pink. These cute rainbow sock hearts are not only great gift ideas but make excellent decorations as well.

Materials needed:

Several rainbow socks or if you don’t have rainbow socks, socks in different colors will do just fine

Heart shaped pattern

Thread and needle

Sock filler such as pillow filler or rice

Instructions:

Cut out two heart shapes with the socks for each sock you are making.

Lay the two sock hearts together and sew together, ensure you leave an opening for the filler.

Stuff with filler or rice and finish sewing completely.
