Danish Weaving Heart
This is a cute and easy tutorial for a perfect Valentines Gift. This little handmade heat can simply be given as a small little token or stuffed with sweets and treats!!
What you will need:
40cm ribbon (optional)
Fabric glue (optional)
Sewing machine (optional)
The Craft Cotton Company’s Felt Set
First, cut your template and fabric:
Click here to get the template. Print off and cut out the template. Draw around the template on the pink felt.
Fold the felt in half along the bottom part of the shape.
Cut around the shape. For the fingers, cut vertical lines along the drawn lines, but do not cut along the crease.
Repeat these instructions with the piece of red felt.
Finally, pin and weave:
Pin the tops of each shape so that they are folded in half together (this makes it easier to weave). Place the red pelt on the left and the pink felt on the right.
Get the first finger of the pink felt and the last finger of the red felt. Put the pink finger through the red finger. Then, get the first finger of the pink felt again and thread the third finger on the red felt through the pink finger. Repeat this for the rest of the first finger on the pink felt.
Repeat this process, alternating between the red and pink felt until it takes them shape of the heart and has a check-board pattern.
You can also make your heart into a little basket.
Fold the ribbon ends over by 1cm. Place the ribbon on the fingers closest to the curves of the heart on each side. If you do not want to sew, use fabric glue to attach the ribbon.
If you want to give the heart more structure, sew around the perimeter of the heart, up to the start of the curves on the heart.
