Instructions

  1. Pin your heart template to your felt (I printed a paper one from my computer) then cut around the template. Be sure to keep the template tight to the felt for a
    professional-looking finish.
  2. Put the two felt hearts together and pin in the centre. It’s now time to start stitching, using a blanket stitch. If you are unsure of this stitch, we’ve got a great video.
  3. For the stuffing I used unravelled cotton wall balls. Stuff as much or little as you like, the more shape the better the finish.
  4. Continue to sew the heart, once at the end, tie a knot with the needle and thread. Snip the ends and you have a beautiful felt heart.

Top Tip

If you wish to use the heart for hanging, pull a piece of thread through one of the stitches, or put wire or a small stick in the bottom of the heart and use as a cake topper or in your wedding flowers.

Alternatively scatter loosely on your wedding table for a pretty look.
