Happy (almost) Valentine’s Day! I have two little felt crafts to share today. First, I was part of a mom’s group Valentine exchange. After searching through all of Purl Bee’s wonderful collection of crafts I decided the Sweetheart Charms would be fun and easy enough to make multiple times. So I used wool felt to stitch up 12 little hearts. I used baker’s twine for the loops and skipped the stuffing to make these easier to mail.
Because of the thickness of the felt and knotted twine I was concerned that they wouldn’t lie flat enough in the envelopes. So I cut up some old Nikki McClure calendars to make little envelopes. I love her art so much and always keep her calendars around to repurpose.
And then I mailed these off to other moms around the country (and world!).
When it comes to little crafts felt is always my favorite. Which brings me to my other heart-shaped craft. Last Valentine’s Day I made a heart garland inspired by the one Gail made (that was in turn based off a tutorial from Made By Rae).
I was happy to pull these hearts out again. I love making holiday decorations that you can reuse each year. It’s mostly been up around the window or mirror but O was happy to play with it while reading his farm book this morning.
And unrelated, I realized that it’s been two years since my first post here. What a fun two years they have been. I’ve learned so much and enjoyed getting to know so many of you. Thanks for being along for the ride!
