We have a pretty silly Valentines Day tradition. B and I wear big puffy felt hearts all day! They reminds us of our love while we’re off at work or out in the world.
I made this set maybe four years back so I’ve drawn out the tutorial for you guys. It’s super easy to craft together for a last minute Valentine’s Day surprise.
2 sheets of craft felt
this heart template (or just free hand it)
embroidery floss + needle
a small bit of pillow stuffing
Cut out two hearts from the felt using the template and pen. Stitch the hearts together with embroidery floss about 1cm (about 1/2”) from the edge. Leave a small 5 cm (2”) opening with the needle and thread still attached. Stuff the heart with the stuffing and close up and tie off your heart. Stitch the non-opening side of the safety pin to the back of the heart at the fullest part (or just above).
I jazzed up my heart a bit by cutting away the top felt at the humps just a little to reveal the back felt. I encourage jazziness whenever possible.
Now, pin the heart to your chest and wear it proudly.
Have a happy Valentine’s Day!
