Valentines Day!

Here is an easy, quick make to add to your Valentine gifting...



Felt Heart Tag


It's so easy!  Cut a heart shape from wool felt....I used pinking shears to give my heart a little more flair!

Decorate hearts with LOVE {of course}, or XO, or even little diamond shapes...


Make letter templates on freezer paper, cut out and press onto wool felt.  If your felt is 100% wool the freezer paper will stick (temporarily) and the felt won't melt.  If your felt is a blend be careful when adding heat.  We don't want any melted hearts!

After cutting out the letters...be careful, they are tiny!  Baste them with Glue Baste-It, or pin them in place and stitch using a matching thread.


     
 You need another heart for the back...it doesn't need to be cut with pinking shears.  A little piece of ribbon for the hang tag is pinned in place and stitch around the edge of the heart with perle cotton (Valdani!!!) Be sure to leave an opening for stuffing!
Stuff and close up!

 
And you have a very special tag to add to a plate of cookies or a bottle of wine!


  Happy Valentine's Day!
