The Creative Carousel is back!
I am so excited to share some Valentine's Day-themed inspiration today!!
I love the Creative Carousel because it's my opportunity to join forces with some truly talented ladies. After assigning a theme, we all set to work on a project. It's so fun to see everyone'e individual creativity shine. After taking a look at my project, I hope you'll stop by to take a look at the other fabulous tutorials also! Here is my contribution to the Creative Carousel:
As you know, I adore felt and have plenty left over from my quiet book and countless other projects! Well, it's making another appearance today! I first spotted similar chair pouches at Sheek Shindigs, and knew I wanted to create my own! These will be our own little Valentine's Day mailboxes.
These were really quite simple to put together! I sewed all 3 pouches for our family in an afternoon. So let's get started!
For this project, you will need:
-- Felt (I used red and white)
-- Jumbo ricrac
-- Sewing velcro
-- Flocked heat adhesive vinyl from Silhouette (optional)
-- Ribbon or other embellishing supplies
-- Sewing supplies
To start, I created a heart pattern from freezer paper. If you would like to use the same pattern, just click here to download mine. I did resize the pattern so it would fit a 12x12 sheet of paper. After creating the heart, I pinned it to white felt and just cut out the scalloped heart (the back) by hand.
I also cut out a second red heart and chopped off the top to create the pouch. To hang the pouch on the chair, I cut a long strip of felt about 19 inches long, but this was custom for our individual kitchen chairs.
