Fleece Valentine Heart Tied Pillow Craft Kit
The Kids Loved Them!!
I got these pillows as a welcome craft for my daughter's 7th birthday party. The kids loved them! It took our 6 to 7 year olds about 45 minutes to finish them with the help of their moms. I got the sqaure Winter pillows for the boys because I didn't think they would like the hearts, but they chose the hearts anyway! Although the square pillows were easier to keep lined up correctly.
As far as the stuffing, it is DEFINITELY enough, just be sure to fluff it up before inserting like the directions say. The pillows now look really cute on my girls' beds!

Great for our Grade 2 First Communion Retreat
I have used these heart pillows for several years now. I give them to our grade 2 First Communion Students on their Retreat Day as a way to focus on prayer. The idea being that prayer is a heart to heart talk with God.

Fun but challenging
Bought these for my daughter's 7th birthday party. The girls had a hard time understanding which pieces to tie together. The fabric was a little thin and if you pulled too hard it might rip.The adults ended up doing most of the work. The girls loved the finished product!

Great pillow for Valentine's Day
This is a nice little heart-shaped pillow I bought to give to my mother and the other ladies at her assisted living home for Valentine's Day. I know they will love the pillows, and they are super quick and easy to make. I made 4 already today while watching a DVD. The fleece comes already aligned and cut so all I have to do is tie the knots and stuff in the stuffing.

Valentine's Day Craft
This craft involves making a LOT of knots. If you have small children who cannot tie their shoes yet and don't know how to make simple knots, this will be a challenge.

Cute Craft for Valaentines Day
I am always looking for crafts that are not only fun, but useful as well. This craft fits the bill. My only negative comment would be the finished size. It is too small for a real pillow, so my grand children used it for their large dolls.

I bought this for my son's 4th grade valentine party. The kids & teacher loved it. Most of the students were able to complete it in the time given. The rest took it home to complete. Other teachers asked my son's teacher where she came up with it when they saw all the kids leaving school with their pillows. It was a big hit!

Great for young girl scouts troop
Girls could easily make the pillows on their own. Troop is using them to hold their SWAPS pins. Cute.

Easy to make for 8+. Nice, soft and pretty gift for under $4. Sure to get a smile!
All you have to do is tie two strips together. Easy to make. Kids can learn to tie, but those who already know will quickly make this pretty little pillow. Ages 8 up should be able to make with little supervision once you help them check to make sure the fabric is lined up to match top and bottom. Grab entire ball of fluff and push inside, then gently let your hands flatten and spread to make the heart take shape. Affordable and nice quality. Fun gift or keep for yourself!

Not for 1st graders
I used these pillows as a birthday party project/take home present for my daughter's 7 y.o, PJ party. Reviews said it would take 45 minutes. I would say the level of understanding and patience, this is not meant for 6-7 yr old kiddos. Thankfully I had many adults to help. Also, the stuffing does have many particles to it, could be a breathing hazard for anyone with airway conditions.
