Valentine’s Goody Bags

Something you need to know, is that my little man is very good at negotiating. He told us tonight that he needed Lifesavers for his blood sugar. He doesn’t have any blood sugar issues…none. Little Man is 6, he is 6. He is not aware of anyone that has blood sugar troubles. Yet there he stood declaring the need to care for it, after consuming a very balanced meal of protein, fat and carbs. I read some very hilarious dealings with little ones onMad Mommy’s site the other night, and his banter reminded me of some of the things she covers. Too funny! What do you do!? Haha


I am kinda ever so slightly proud of myself: I got the main part of my Valentine’s stuff made. It’s not finished, but the main part is. Normally I have this horrible habit of starting whatever special occasion’s crafts or goodies the day of or minutes before it’s time to partake. UGH! I made a vow after doing this on New Years that I would do a better job of getting things done at least a few days before. Oh and to simplify it.


I have been seeing these adorable cloth bags on different blogs (I meant to bookmark them and then I had to restart the computer. If I can find the ones I am thinking of I will link them) with hearts or some other Valentine’s decoration. I was quite enamored at their simple beauty. I had some leftover chevron fabric from my bulletin board project and I don’t want it making its way to the fabric stash because there is too much in the stash. So I put it to work for V-day filled with little treats.

These were super easy to make; I was actually on the phone while I sewed these…the phone was on my shoulder no headsets were involved in the making of these bags. I started with a hem at the top and then sewed up the sides. Pretty much just straight stitches. I then put some cardboard inside and used acrylic paint and quickly painted on some hearts, also while on the phone. I like how the chevron pattern shows through the paint. Now I have some cute bags to give out and nothing to store in my stash! YAY!

    These are sweet little goodie bags. I am actually scrambling to get the rest of my kids stuff ready for school tomorrow.

    • Heather February 15, 2014 at 10:02 am

      I’m normally scrambling, this was the first thing in a long time that I didn’t do that with! I hope you were able to get everything ready for your kiddos! :)

    • Heather February 15, 2014 at 10:01 am

      Thank you! You know I didn’t think about doing it until you mentioned it, so I made sure I put the red and white ones in his bag!

    OH my gosh, the blood sugar comment is TOO funny! My son is almost 6 and he cracks me up every day. Since my husband is actually diabetic, I’m surprised I haven’t heard something like this come from my little man!
