Have a heart


I enjoyed making the felt owls which I shared with you last week so I thought I would have a go at making something else. I tried a Spellbinders die and was delighted that it cut felt so easily. I also found these flower dies which came free with a magazine and they also cut straight through felt. I really liked the idea of a button in the middle of the flower too. Off I went to Hobbycraft for some different coloured felt and a bag of filling. Here is the result of my design. I am hoping these will sell well all year round as I love making them. The beauty of sewing is I can do it whilst watching TV which I can't do when cardmaking.  Of course some programmes like Poldark demand my full attention so the sewing gets put away when that is on.

I would like to enter these into anything goes challenge at Not just cards.

These are lovely and sure to sell well. That's a very neat blanket stitch around the edges, finishes them off beautifully.

These felt hearts are so cute! They would be so nice on top of a gift instead of a bow or even as a car key chain! Adorable! I can't believe the spellbinders die goes thru felt...the possibilities are endless now!!!

Poldark was a naughty boy on Sunday though!

Loving your hearts. They'd be great for the Christmas tree or a garland. All the dies are just fab with felt. Have fun!
