Stitching Hearts

Well, Valentine's will be here in about 5 weeks. Since my family is still considering a Valentine Christmas (or Valentmas?) then I am starting some ornaments to make a heart tree. I realize that it's just barely January but I don't want to wait until too close to make them since they can take a while and for a tree that size I'd need a lot.

So yesterday I started checking out possibilities and found this tutorial for making felt ornaments. The only thing I'm changing is that I'm not going to stuff mine as I much prefer the look of them when they're flat. The multiple layers are adding plenty of depth on their own already.

It would of course be impossible to try to do a project without one of the cats wanting to play, so Pixel is jumping in this morning to help by trying to eat the heart ornaments. Thank you, Pixel.

Felt hearts are a really good project for sitting in front of the TV or while waiting on dinner to finish. And I'm finding it pretty easy to stick a couple in my purse so this could be done while people watching, too (one of my favorite things).


  1. Wow, those are so pretty! The stitching is perfect too - great job!

  2. Between these and the reed covered walls, I had to become a follower. Awesome ideas!!!

  3. awwww, that is perfect. love the hearts.

  4. Wow I can't believe how ahead of the game you are!!! I would wait until feb. 12 and then panic!


I love comments. It's nice to know someone is reading and I appreciate and read every one.
