With Valentine’s Day around the corner, I wanted to share some DIY Valentine Crafts.
Made this banner the same way I made my HAPPY BIRTHDAY banner. Just with the words “BE MINE” and a few hearts.
I saw these hearts on Family Fun and thought it would be cute to make them for A & B. I made it different, but both are cute.
Here are the steps for the one I made:
-double up the felt to make it thicker and cut out hearts about 10 in. wide and 8 inches high.
-cut out a strip 1 1/2 in by 22 in and fold over, blanket stitch or sew up the side
-iron on pellon to your polka dot/striped fabric and then cut out little hearts
-peel off back of pellon and iron onto your felt hearts
-blanket stitch or sew around the fabric hearts and top of felt hearts
-pin heart sides together with strap inside and sew or blanket stitch around edges
-put a fun surprise in it and hang it on the door!
-the tricky part is the blanket stitch, but once you learn it, it is easy and makes it very cute!
