Today I had to work with the sewing machine, shortening curtains, and while busy with that, I got the idea to make a felt heart envelope. This is perfect to add some sweets for a special someone(this one is for my daughter), or even a little letter.
Obviously, you don’t have to use a sewing machine, you could hand sew, or just use a glue gun.
What I did:
I used a white felt rectangle, about 150×75.
Then I folded in half, and again in half like this. It is easier to cut half of a heart, but double it, to give a mirrored effect. And I wanted a front and back side, hence the double fold.
Now you have a double heart. I cut another heart, just smaller than the 1st one, to add later.
I set my machine to zig zag mode. Then went around the heart, leaving the top open.
I added a heart button:
I did the same with the smaller heart, and also sewn my daughter’s initial, using another sewing mode.
Lastly, the sweets were added:
A sweet gift indeed☺️
