Valentine Chair Pouch {Creative Carousel}

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.
