I have drowned myself in super-cute fluffy heart-shaped felt this month – and why not? We are literally in Valentine month! This is a simple felt craft project that’s perfect for those who want to gift a little something personal without breaking the bank. Using felts in rainbow colours I created a bundle of colorful little felt hearts with blanket stitching and strung them all up for hanging as a bunting for my dog’s birthday two days ago.
This is a super-simple DIY project that is perfect for seasoned hands as well as young children.
Begin by drawing a heart pattern and gathering the materials. Lay down the materials, cut the pattern out on the felt and assemble the felt hearts. Apart from the felt and embroidery floss you will need a little stuffing to turn the felt hearts into cute little plushies.
Feel free to get even more creative and maybe consider sticking eyes like I have ala Commes des Garçons or embroidering an initial on the felt or add a pin at the back to turn this cute little felt heart into a pretty wearable brooch – how sweet!
Whatever you are planning for Valentine’s Day, make sure there’s a little handmade involved! Enjoy!
