‘Heart Felt’

This cute craft project is a great way to make a delightful decorative bunting garland for valentines day. This is also a sweet garland to make for nursery decor or baby showers, and the details you add make it an adorable personalised handmade gift.

Its a simple way to make bunting that’s beautiful from both sides, the beauty of felt is that it has a clean finished edge once you cut it, the trick is cutting it smoothly- you’ll really need good scissors.

Step 2: Cut pairs of felt hearts.

Step 3: Cut your template at the dotted line and use it to mark the position of your ribbon. You only need to do this on half the cut hearts.

Step 4: pin your ribbon on your mark, then add a second heart cut out on top, and pin around the edge.

Step 5: Space the hearts out as you want to, a gap of one hearts width. stitch around the edges, 6mm from the cut edge. If anything is misaligned you can trim a little at the end

This is a really fun project for beginners and kids learning to stitch, And with this technique you can make really pretty bunting in any shapes or colours you can imagine.
