Felted Heart Garland

I made this sweet Valentine’s Day felted heart garland today. I started out with some felted sweaters. You can see how to felt old wool sweaters here. I cut out a bunch of hearts in different sizes, and arranged them in a random pattern.

To make the garland, get out your sewing machine, and start feeding them, leaving different sized gaps between each heart.

It’s really simple to do, you just stitch through the first heart and keep stitching with nothing in the machine for a second or two to create the gap, then feed in your next heart. Repeat until you’re done. Easy peasy.

Arent’ they pretty? I hung mine up on the mantel when they were done.

They would also look really great as a ribbon on a present I think. More on the mantel soon.

May all the hearts in your life be as soft and sweet as these.

  2. Very cute. I love the pink and white together, and that the hearts are on the small side. It makes a soft, sweet look, instead of an in your face kind of design. Nice.
