The Stacked Hearts Felt Bracelet - a last minute Valentine's project
This was my last Valentine's project this year and although it had originally been planned for the past weekend, I ended up finishing it just last evening, in time for my daughter to wear to school today and for me to share here.
Last year I made my daughter a ribbon necklace for Valentine's day, with little felt hears and red beads:
This year she had been asking for quite some time for a matching bracelet. So I searched for some felt scraps in the right colors and for a bit of pink elastic. The hearts were cut from felt using the Sizzix.
Then I stacked the hearts and sewed them to one of the pink rectangles (gluing would work well too).
Once this was done, I sandwiched the tips of the elastic between the felt rectangles and secured them (gluing the middle and adding some stitches at the edges):
And the bracelet was ready to use, as simple as that.
I wanted my daughter to try it on. but she didn't want her arm to show in the picture, so I used mine instead (much less graceful, unfortunately).
This is truly very easy to make and great if you need a last minute Valentine's gift for girls.
