Recently I have been checking out some craft blogs and been inspired by some of the lovely things that can be made from felt, this brought back memories of when I used to create things from felt when I was a little girl and so I decided to have another go after all those years.
The hearts and pillow are very similar to the designs I made all those years ago!
These are ideal if you want to make a quick gift for someone as they only took me an evening to make.
You will need :
Felt squares in colour of your choice
Three threads of DMC thread for the blanket stitch on the outside of the pillow and heartsand two threads for the stitching on the small hearts
Cut a paper pattern for the Heart Shapes
Make the square pillow in any size you want
Stuffing for the inside
Ribbon to stitch the hearts to.
I started this Love Birds Valentine Pillow in January but could not decide how to finish it until now.
I got the pattern from one of my favourite freebie blogs over at Swappons here , if you look around this blog you will see some gorgeous finishes in the gallery of pictures.
This Valentine Lady Bug is a current work in progress and I have not decided yet how to finish it, if you pop over to Mylene’s blog she has finished it into a beautiful mattress pincushion and she is offering it up as a
blog giveaway until Valentines Day on Saturday – so hurry!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
