Hello! I have a sweet little project for you to stitch you for your sweetie with Valentine’s Day: Valentine’s Treat Pouch. This project is made out of felt, just like the Valentine’s Treat Bags I shared yesterday, but this one takes a little bit more time, and therefore should be given to someone a little bit more special. Also, this one is much smaller and closes securely. Also, I whipped up this little pouch with my friend #MyFavoriteBloggers. Each month we all create on a certain theme. This month we all created Heart Shaped projects. Make sure to read all the way to the bottom of this post to meet the whole gang and to see all their creative projects.
But first, how to create your own Felt Valentine’s Treat Pouch.
First of all, take a look at how this pouch is set up. In order to make a pouch all you need is one piece of felt, thread and a ribbon. And, as you can see from the pouch that is open, the felt needed for this project is just 3 conjoined hearts.
So, the first step is to make your own pattern. Below is a picture of the pattern I made for this project.
So, to make your own pattern, cut out a heart that you like. Then, using a thick piece of card-stock trace the heart three times with the straight part of the heart touching.
Stitching up pouch is pretty simple.
- Add a little bit of embellishment to the front of the middle heart. I did this by adding some patterned cotton fabric in a heart-shape and stitched it down with a running stitch.
- Next, fold in one of the hearts, with the embellishment on the outside. Pin a long piece of ribbon right at the top corner of the fold. Then, blanket stitch around the entire perimeter, making sure to stitch in the ribbon as you go.
- Keep going and blanket stitch around the third heart that is not folded it. Once again stitch in ribbon as you go.
- And guess what…you’re done!
See, doesn’t it look so cute when it’s all folded up?
