Woven Felt Heart

This handmade woven felt heart makes for a heartfelt gift! I love how the two pieces come together to make a gorgeous high-contrast heart. This is a great craft for all ages.

Total Time: 40 minutes

Yield: 1 heart

Supplies:

Steps:

  1. Mark the paper 2.5 inches up from the bottom.
  2. Fold the paper once straight across at the mark.
  3. Cut across at the fold so you have a long 8.5 inch by 2.5 inch rectangle.
  4. Fold the rectangle in half.
  5. Trim the edges off the rectangle so they are rounded.
  6. Unfold the paper and place it on top of your red felt and trace around it to make a cutting guide.
  7. Cut out one red piece and one black piece from the pattern.
  8. Fold both pieces in half.
  9. Place the red piece over the black to form a heart shape.
  10. Use the pencil to mark the red felt where the black felt crosses underneath.
  11. Draw a line straight down the red piece, mark the black piece at the middle where the red edge touches.
  12. Cut a slit up the red piece on the line you drew.
  13. Cut another slit on both sides of the middle slit so you have four equal strips.
  14. Repeat with the black piece of felt. Tuck the first strip of the black felt under the first strip of the red felt. Weave over and under and over.
  15. Continue with the second strip, over, under, over, under.
  16. Continue until all pieces are woven tightly. They will hold nicely together without any help.
