valentine felt banner

Last night I had some fun trying out a simple project.  I was needing some more fun Valentine pieces for my booth at Aunt Bee's, so I put together this fun and simple banner!


All it took was a small piece of felt, baker's twine, and some glitzy pom poms from the craft store.
Minimal sewing.


The three dimensional hearts start out as a folded in half piece of felt fabric.  I sewed a straight line about a half inch from the folded edge of fabric.  Then, I flipped the fabric out to the cut edge, and sewed another straight line.


I cut one inch sections to make individual hearts with my pinking shears.  

Everything was strung together with red and white baker's twine!  So cute and fun!  I could see all kinds of projects with these fun little hearts!


They'd be cute stacked in a frame too, no?

Hope this gives you some inspiration for some fun projects for Valentine's Day!
