11 Tips for sewing felt

Making the felt hearts

(complete each step on one felt square at a time)

Step 1:

On the felt square draw lines the length of the square every 2.5cm. This will create 12 drawn stripes.

Step 2:

With the stripes running from side to side, fold the square in half as though closing a book matching the stripes. Pin or clip together the long edge.

Step 3:

Sew along the folded edge, 5mm from the edge.

Step 4:

Remove the clips from the side not sewn & open the felt like a book. Folding the felt back on itself, bring the two open edges together. The sewn seam should be on the inside – this will make a heart shape. Do not squash!

Ease the heart along the wool, stopping at the pom pom. Spread out the felt layers and a heart shape will form. Spend a little time shaping the heart. Repeat steps 3 to 7 alternating red and white hearts until all the hearts and pom poms are used up.
