February never feels like a short month until it is the last day of the month. That is how I always feel, anyways. Anyone else ever feel like that too?? Did any of you sign up or receive the new subscription Wool Box from Primitive Gatherings? It is FULL of goodies (wool projects, thread, candy, recipes…and so much more) and fun! I love receiving happy mail! One of the wool goodies included was a stack of 5″ wool charms. My girls and I made some wooly heart bowl fillers.

Perfect for February decorating! 

The box includes oodles of goodies. I plan on prepping Forest Friends mat for an upcoming trip. That is what I love about these wool projects, they are so portable! You cannot see it, but there is a pincushion kit too that you can use with a ruler box included. I have already put the ruler box to good use on my longarm cart. It holds all my partially used magnetic bobbins.
 Wooly hearts were easy to make. I just picked out the 6 wool charms out of my pack that I thought would work best for hearts.  I will save the green and black charms for something else. I guess you could make black and green hearts too if you wanted (chuckling).  I printed a free printable heart template off the internet. I then traced it on a leftover Moda 5″ charm I had in my stash. 
Stitched the hearts on my sewing machine, being sure to leave an opening for stuffing. Girls stuffed them with leftover batting (no shortage of that here).
And then we hand whipped stitched them up. Easy and fun project to make with the wooly charms. 

You can order your wool box from Primitive Gatherings here. I think I will use the hearts for Christmas and summer decorating with red, white and blue as well. I am looking forward to making the rest of the projects in my box.

    Very clever use of some of the wool squares. Fun to have creative projects to do with your daughters.
    The wool box sounds like a fun surprise in the mail each month. But I have tubs of wool and a box full of Lisa's patterns that I should tackle first. 🙂
