I whipped this up yesterday as a Valentine to stick inside my husband's lunchbag. We don't do a lot to celebrate V-Day. It's too commercialized for our taste. So, I thought a little homemade gift would be cute. This pattern hasn't been tested, but it works up in about an hour if you want to try it out.
