These cute, little easy-to-make pin cushions surely say, Be Mine.
You need a cookie cutter, some fabric, some batting, and some ribbon.
Cover a stack of batting hearts with fabric placed on the bias, and shove it through the cookie cutter.

You can never have too many pin cushions. And these will make every crafter say, "Be Mine." I made one from an old cookie cutter and the other from a tired dish towel, and here's how I did it.

The Cookie Cutter Valentine

To make this version you'll need: a heart-shaped cookie cutter that's about an inch deep; a scrap of fabric 6 inches square; some quilt batting (I used a new batting from Quilters Dream called Dream Green that's made from recycled plastic bottles, so this whole project really is eco-friendly); some stiff, firm fabric to make a base; a piece of ribbon or trim; and some fabric adhesive.

  You need a cookie cutter, some fabric, some batting, and some ribbon.

1. Cut the batting into heart shapes, tracing the inside of the cookie cutter for a pattern. Make a stack of batting hearts that's about 1/2 inch taller than the cookie cutter.
