Free Pattern - Puffy Heart Tutorial

Hi there!  I have a fun little project for you and the kids to make during lock-down.  These adorable puffy hearts are perfect for beginner sewists and can be made from either fabric or felt.  You  can make them into hanging ornaments, pincushions, cat toys or fill them with some lavender to create sweet smelling sachets for your drawers.   Here's what you'll need to make one Puffy Heart: ✼ Sewing machine and thread, a pair of embroidery scissors, pins, bead needle, long doll needle, pinking shears (optional)   ✼ 5x7 inch piece of fabric or felt for the Heart ✼ 4x4 inch felt for Strawberry Leaves ✼ 2x2 inch felt for Strawberry Flower ✼ Stuffing and an orange stick or chopstick and a plastic drinking straw (to aid in turning heart right side out) ✼ Dried lavender, catnip (optional) ✼ Embroidery thread/floss   ✼ Disappearing ink marker   ✼ Seed beads (3 red for Strawberry pincushion), crystal beads, charms, bells, ribbon, lace ☛ Click here to download pattern Pleas
