Felt Valentine Hearts

Christmas has passed, and suddenly it is time to begin decorating for Valentine's Day.  All the love we experienced over the holidays will now be made into heart cards, heart desserts, heart prints, heart garland.....
On this freezing day in the Northeast, I thought I would get a little head start.  I have seen these little felt hearts on Pinterest, and I decided to give them a try.

Felt ~ your choice of colors
Sewing machine

I had red and white felt in my craft basket ~ and it was way too cold to go to the store (:

I cut two 4" wide strips of each color ~ I didn't worry about the length since I would be cutting them to size.

First, with the wrong sides of the felt together, I sewed a 1/4" seam.

I turned it inside out and sewed a 1/4" seam on the opposite side with the right sides together.

It will look like a "heart tube."  With scissors, I cut the hearts.  I made some 1" thick and some 1/2" thick.

Now that I had my hearts, I began thinking of various uses for them ~ garland ~ a 3D addition to a Valentine's card ~ a cute little gift tag topper.

This beautiful Valentine paper is available for free here

A great way to "spread the love"  ♥
