This is what you need + a dab of glue (not shown).
Cut a length of string to hang the heart up and tie the ends together and cut out two heart shapes. I made mine about 5″, which seemed a manageable size to sew and fit a small gift inside.
I found it was easiest to start sewing where the presser foot is in the picture below. Place your loop of string between the layers (as shown) and when you get to it you’ll sew over it and secure it .
When you reach the bottom point of the heart stop with the needle and presser foot down. Gently open up the two layers and pop your goodies in (I had to use fabric scraps for this test one!)
Sew up the last straight edge and stick your star on the front.
I’m thinking about making some other shapes – perhaps stars or birds…
