You need one bandanna for a valentine bag.
To make one bag, buy a 22-inch-square bandanna (at a variety store), a 12-by 24-inch piece of 1/2-inch-thick batting, 1-1/8 yards of cording (or a length appropriate for the height of the bag's recipent), and a large snap fastener (optional). Cost should be less than $5.
Fold the bandanna in four to form a square; trace the square's outline on a piece of paper. Cut out the paper square, fold it in half diagonally, and outline a half-heart on its as shown above. Cut out the shape, cutting through both paper layers. Unfold and flatten the heart.
Lay the bandanna flat; pin the pattern to each of its corners in turn, matching the placement of the bandanna's design. Cut out four fabric hearts and two corresponding hearts from batting.
Pin two fabric hearts, right sides together, to one batting heart; baste. Machine-stitch these three layers, allowing a 1/2-inch seam and leaving a 2-1/2-inch opening along one straight edge. Trim batting, then turn fabric right side out; hand-stitch the opening. Repeat with the remaining hearts.
Pin the two stuffed hearts together and pin the cording between them, positioned just outside their top curves; baste. Then machine-stitch a 1/4-inch seam around the heart the long way between the two cording ends. Stitch the heart point to reinforce ti and stitch over the cording several times to secure it. If desired, sew on a snap fastener at the top center of the heart.
