for today's daily make, i wanted to try a heart garland i saw on pinterest. looked pretty easy! i went to the link here but it was all in another language. so i wanted to test it out for myself.
here's what you need: felt rectangles, scissors, sewing machine, embroidery thread, embroidery needle
i had a bunch of this heart patterned felt and this is probably the only time of year i'll ever use it. plus it makes it really easy to see my tutorial steps. plain felt would be perfect, as well. (and you won't have to worry about getting the "right side" out.)
you really only need about 2 sheets of felt. SUPER CHEAP PROJECT!
cut your felt into 2 rectangles, about 4- 5 inches wide by 11 inches long. (note: i had a giant sheet of felt and didn't use squares. so in my pictures, i have quite a bit more felt than you'll use with sheets.)
turn your felt inside out so the right sides are showing. sew a stitch all the way down about 4 inches from the left edge.
looking back- maybe next time i would attempt beads or something else in between the hearts. and of course, now that i finished my tutorial, i just found a wonderful tutorial on huckleberry love. check it out.
anyway- happy crafting to you!
