Stuffed Heart (The Heart is Primary)

The Heart Is Primary
   I selected my friend Jesus as the recipient of my stuffed heart.  He has been my friend since we were in elementary school.  I wanted to let him know how much I value our friendship throughout the years.  The stuffed heart has helped me to express my feelings. 
Making a handmade gift for someone is a new experience for me.  I have little experience sewing too.  But I was surprised that I was able to create this token with felt material.  I wasn't sure I would be able to complete the project successfully enough to give the heart as a gift.  My friend's response helped to make my project and act of kindess a success.  He was very emotional when he received the gift.  I didn't realize how much our friendship meant to Jesus.....
