A Felt Heart Project

Good morning/afternoon lovelies. Recently we have had such brilliant weather and it’s certainly improved everyone’s mood. With my recent situation I thought it would be a great idea to make the most of all the free time that I now seem to have. And so I have with a little project. 

This is how it started out, I sketched out a rough idea and tacked it on to some felt. Cutting round this was a little difficult with chucky fabric scrissor’s but got there!! 

I loved playing around with the placement of the buttons but wasn’t keen on the patchwork placement. I changed it but you’ll need to see the final piece!! 

The tricky part!! It was easy enough to do the blanket stitch until I started adding the stuffing! That’s when it got a little difficult and fiddly. Very fiddly. (Had to relearn the blanket stitch since the cute watermelon project!!) But it was so worth it. Why, well check out the next photo!!! 

I had forgot about the patchwork patch until I found it under my buttons box. It was a challenge sewing this on when over half the heart was already stitched!! 

I’m so pleased with the out come of this little project. Love that I used my time in such a more postive manner with this little cutie. In fact I’m already thinking of making more with other felt colours and fabrics!!! Think I’ll keep this one as a tester and experiment with the others. Watch this space for a potential up coming shop if I get enough interest!! 

What projects have you lovelies been working on?? Where they a challenge and what did you learn? 

Until next time my lovelies. 

Xx
