And we are back, for another year of hearty crafts with RED TED Art. We are the se7en gang, a homeschooling family waving hello from sunny Cape Town. We are a family with eight kids, when we started blogging they were all tiny… but now they are growing up fast. You can follow our homeschooling journey and outdoor adventures at se7en_hoods on instagram. We like to decorate a valentine’s tree every year. We decorate it with little hearts, that we can gift to friends when they visit on the day, just something small they can pop into their diary, or use as a bookmark or pin onto their noticeboard. We thought we would share one of our hearty crafts that we have been creating this year and my kids have been asking for a sewing craft forever… so here you go: Little Felt Hearts to hang on a Valentine Tree.
To make Felt Hearts, you will need:
- Brightly coloured felt,
- Brightly coloured embroidery threads,
- Embroidery needles (which are slightly chunkier and easier to handle than regular sewing needles)
Step-by-Step Instructions for sewing a felt heart
First cut out a number of hearts, in various sizes starting with the smallest heart and moving up until you have the size heart you would like to create… They don’t have to be cut exactly using a template, the rougher they are the more arty your results will be.
As our RED TED Art friends head towards Springtime in the Northern Hemisphere, I thought we could show you a couple of spring themed crafts: Something outdoors, something floral, and something playful.
Here are some more adorable Sewing Projects for Valentine’s:
