Love Letter Valentine Chairbacker - Free Sewing Project

Posted by Devon Iott
Make this adorable Love Letter Valentine Chairbacker to fill with goodies for your kids/grandkids/kids at heart! Use the included applique design to personalize the flap, or simply monogram it with a name. For a non-embroidered option, use the included template to add a red felt embellishment to the Velcro closure. This would be very easy to modify with non-seasonal fabric to make a toddler/little kid backpack or activity bag. You could also tie it to the back of your car seats to hold books and snacks.
