DIY Felt Heart Pouch

Just more playing with felt, which I've decided isn't so bad as long as there's minimal hot-glue involved.

Two felt panels, one a little shorter than the first...
I used some zig-zagging because it's fun. :P
Then, a button on the shorter panel!
Totally not good button form, I just cut a small slit in the other panel for a button-hole. Cheap felt's not so durable anyway.
Next, I machine blanket-stitched a pink ribbon to the back panel. The ribbon-end didn't come out too pretty though since there was a lot of fraying going on with the ribbon.
And some "fun with the sewing machine", I used one of those not-often-used embroidery stitches on the front panel!
Add a heart for Valentine's Day...
Sew the panels together with blanket-stitch and you're done!
My blanket-stitch still isn't the cleanest.  Needs more practice!
Fits a smudgy cell phone, haha.

I think I will fill this pouch with candy and send it to Penga-Sis for V-Day.  Though maybe I should have made it black instead of pink.  She's really not much of a pink fan. :P

By the way, please check out the link tab at the top of the site and make sure you're in there! (And that I linked everything correctly..) It's an opt-in list, so if you're not there and would like to be let me know anytime!

Also, I added a project tab as well so hopefully that makes it easier to find things around here. Maybe. Ha!

  3. The embroidery stitch is AWESOME! It makes anything look good!! :D

    Maybe you should prize away this pink one to your readers and make Penga-sis a black one! With red stitching?! (It looks cool in my head... Like your wedding colors. haha.)
