Quick mini felt hearts for Valentine's Day

I'm busy working my way through my felt stash, and so I'm always looking for crafting opportunities to make a dent, no matter how small!

This week I've been making some little felt hearts for Valentine's Day. I'm not sure how to use them yet, I thought I might hang them one above the other for a Valentine's Day hanging, or just display them in a little bowl that I have on the sideboard which I like to fill with some kind of seasonal decoration

I made myself two paper heart templates, a larger one and a smaller one, and cut out lots of hearts.

Then I sewed a small button into the centre of each small heart. I also have a sizeable button stash! After sewing the smaller heart onto the larger one I used blanket stitch to sew two sides together and added a small amount of stuffing. I like to use tiny spare felt scraps for stuffing as it's a great way to make sure that nothing is wasted.

I've only made a few felt hearts so far but they were so quick and easy to make that I'm tempted to sew up a few more! My red felt is getting low so I might try out a few different colours too.

If you are looking for a similar project to use up your colourful felt scraps then why not try this simple felt heart garland? It is very quick and easy to make and it makes a room look so cheerful.
