Easy valentine sweetheart tutorial and give away,

It is almost Valentine! And for those who are very busy but want to make a little sweetheart...Or if you want to make them with your kids.. here is a little tutorial for this sweetheart.

valentine sweetheart

What do you need;

http://dutch-colours.blogspot.com/

A piece of felt, thread, a little filling like a cotton wool pad, a needle, a ‘kartelschaar’ and scissors. (I don’t know the English word for ‘kartelschaar’ if you do please tell me.)

Step 1,

http://dutch-colours.blogspot.com/

Cut out the paperheart (if you want glue it on firm paper)

Step 2,

http://dutch-colours.blogspot.com/

Lay the heart on the piece of felt and outline the heart with a pencil on the felt.

Step 3,

http://dutch-colours.blogspot.com/

Fold the felt and Cut out the heart with the kartelschaar (= the scissor with triangular curve) on the pencil line. Now you have two cut out pieces.

Step 4,

Embroider little flowers, dots and leaves on one heartpiece.

Stap 5,

Lay one (or more) cotton pad between the two hearts. If you want you can put a few drops of lavender or rose essence on it.

Step 6,

Sew the heart together with small stitches. Now make a loop to hang it with. For a extra tough you can sew a little bow on it .
an readdy it is!

What a cute sweetheart! Thank you!! I think kartelschaar must be what we call "pinking shears"!

OK. Here's I am leaving a "comment" in order to see any chance finding me towards Istanbul:)

What a wonderful tutorial.. so pretty! Everyone can make them. I see you already have ten comments, so I'm sure someone already told you that the einglish words for those are pinking shears. :-)

You don't need to put my name in.. you already sent me enough pretty things already. ;-) Give others a chance to get your goodies.

I love working with felt. I made all of my children's Christmas stockings with felt and embellishments. I would love to win your little heart. Count me in.

I am having a giveaway too. Take a peek at my blog to enter.
Stay Cozy, Carrie

Hoi Heleen,
Afgelopen zondag kreeg ik opeens ontzettend veel zin om ons toilet wat meer een girly look te geven. Ik ben het enige meisje in ons gezin dus een beetje rose kan geen kwaad. Ik heb al een stoffen hartenschilderij geknutseld, dit hartje zou er heel mooi bijpassen. En win ik hem niet, dan maak ik 'm gewoon zelf (maar krijgen is natuurlijk veel leuker!).
