Supplies used:

To make these Felt hearts, I started out by die cutting heart shapes using the Layering Basics Traditional Heart from different colors of felt. heart_felt_diecuts

Next, I die cut the Rococo Delicate Heart shape from cream colored felt many many times. Die cutting such an intricate design with felt is not too difficult – make sure you add a few sheets of cardstock as a shim along with the felt while die cutting and it works like a charm!

Once all the die cutting is done, this is a perfect project to finish while watching your favorite TV show. Hand-stitch two felt hearts and a Rococo die cut heart together using a contrast colored embroidery floss. Halfway through, stuff the heart  pocket stuff it with some cotton stuffing or scrap felt. Finish sewing all around and tie a knot, trim the floss.

To make things prettier, I went ahead and used my favorite spring colors of Nuvo Crystal Drops gloss and added small dots all around each heart.
