DIY Felt crafts – How to Make a Heart out of Felt !
Today we will make an alternative to all valentines made of cardboard. It will be a master class – a heart made of felt with your own hands with the correct pattern, the handicraft will serve as a wonderful decor and will always remind you that it was you who presented it on this wonderful day.
To create a heart we need:
• red and black felt;
• red and black beads;
• thread of red and black colors;
• satin ribbon of red color;
• a piece of chalk;
• a pencil;
• glue gun.
First, we prepare a template for the heart . Fold the paper in half and draw an oblong half of the heart starting from the fold. Choose paper of this size, whatever you would like to eventually get the finished product size.
After we cut out the halves along the drawn line, we get a whole heart-pattern.
Circle the outline of this pattern twice with chalk on a black felt.
Of red felt we cut a heart of the same shape, but a little smaller. You can chalk the pattern with chalk on a red felt and cut it out by following the contour.
Cut off 20 cm of satin ribbon, glue its ends and attach them in the middle of the heart between the lobules. The loop turns out.
We set the heart with the eyelet aside and begin to sew the red heart to the second part, placing it on the center. Bringing the needle up, string on one bead. Stitches are about 0.5 cm long.
Then just embroider with red beads the same threads around the red heart , repeating its shape.
Fold the two layers of felt together, so that the edges coincide and the ends of the loop are inside. Sew the “first needle” with the seam and make the upper stitches very short.
Do not finish sewing until the end, fill the middle of the sintepon.

Sew both layers, hiding the end of the thread between them.
We get the original valentine stitched with our own hands.
