Make an adorable felt heart envelope as a Valentine’s gift for a loved one. This is also an easy first sewing project for your older child.
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. Your older child might enjoy this as an easy first sewing project.
What I did:
I used a white felt rectangle, about 150mm x75mm.
Then I folded it 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 backside, 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.
A heart button was added, just as a cute little touch.
I did the same with the smaller heart, and also sewn my daughter’s initial, using another sewing mode.
Lastly, the Love Hearts sweets were added.
A lovely little felt heart envelope gift you can make or your older child can try to make themselves.
