Valentine "Stockings"

Yesterday my daughter had the cutest idea, to make Valentine stockings! She is of the belief that Cupid comes to the house in the same way Santa does.

I gathered my supplies and started working...

I made these out of felt and put a lightweight stabilizer on the front side.  I thought a cone would be a good way to collect goodies.  So, I made a triangle pattern, it is 11 inches in height, just large enough to cover a full sheet of felt.
 I knew just what to do for everyone in the family but me!  My stocking stayed plain all day. 
 I have them hanging from our stairwell (my mantel is a little too Valentine'd)
 This is my favorite-for the muse that inspired me!
 The ribbon at the top reminded me of a bandanna.
 Still seems to lack personality, but oh well!
Can't beat Legos!
