To make a garland of 12 hearts:
1 - You will need a 12inch square of craft felt, 22 small felt balls, 10 larger felt balls. Also a sewing machine, thread and a large hand sewing needle.
2 - Measure and cut 2 strips 12" x 3" (30cm x 8cm)
3 - Mark the width of your hearts on both pieces of fabric. 1" (2.5cm).
4 - Place the maked sides of the fabric together and sew a narrow seam along one long edge
5 - Fold your fabric out, bending it back along the seam line. Sew a narrow seam along the remaining long edge.
6 - Cut along the marked lines.
7 - Thread a large needle with cotton (doubled) and thread through your first heart.
8 - Thread the felt balls onto the cotton, I went for a triple arrangement of white, pink. white.
Continue threading the hearts and felt balls until the garland is complete. Obviously your garland can be as long as you want.
This project is super quick and easy, it literally took me 20 minutes and I'm very slooooow at sewing.
