Step 1:

  • Download the pattern
  • Trace around the pattern with chalk on some felt

Step 2:

  • Mark the inside lines
  • Cut the centre lines with an art knife
  • Cut out the oval

Step 3:

Now do the same to the other piece of felt

Step 4:

  • Once you have the two pieces cut out, wipe off the chalk markings with your finger
  • Fold each piece in half and pin to hold the felt together

Step 5:

  • Weave the first purple loop through the first pink loop
  • Now open up the purple loop and thread the pink loop through the purple loop
  • Thread the purple through the pink, and the pink through the purple loop
  • To weave the second row, thread the 1st pink loop through the purple loop, then the purple loop through 2nd pink loop
  • Weave the pink loop through the purple and the purple loop through the pink
  • Follow this process until all the loops have been woven

Step 6:

Take out the pins and open up the basket

Step 7:

  • Make a handle for the basket
  • Glue the handle on the inside of the basket using hot glue

Step 8:

Now you can fill the basket with all sorts of goodies and give this sweet gift to someone special.

    Thanks for your comment! I guess weaving the handle into the basket could work, I will test it out.

    I have seen these woven hearts and wondered how it was done. The finished project looks more complicated than it really is. Nice instructions! Thank you.

    Thanks for your comment. I thought so too, the weaving does look complicated but it is really easy to weave.
