Free DIY, Be My Bluebird ~ Wool Felt Valentine Tutorial

What a cute Valentine tutorial posted on “Sew Mama Sew” by Melissa of “Checkout Girl”: If you want to return to the days of hand-crafted valentines meant to be kept as mementos for years to come, here’s the tutorial for you! It’s simpler than it looks (which is always a good thing), and its wool-feltiness and hangability mean it’ll never end up in the recycling bin.

Materials:

1 piece of stiffened craft felt (12X18”)

1 piece of red wool felt

1 piece of blue/turquoise wool felt

scraps of wool felt in pink and pale green
(You can substitute the colors of your choice, of course, and you can use craft felt if that’s what you have on hand.)

a few pins

needle

brown embroidery floss

black embroidery floss

pink embroidery floss

blue/turquoise thread or floss

green thread or floss
