Embroidered Felt Heart Tutorial

What better way to tell someone they have your heart than by giving it to them?

These easy to make embroidered felt hearts can be personalized to suit your Valentine.


Whether you want to give them the key to your heart, a sweet sentiment of XOXO or Cupid's arrow, the possibilities are endless.


To make your own embroidered felt hearts:

Cut two hearts out of felt.  I used pinking shears to give the edges of my hearts more of a design flair.  Embellish the front of the heart with a design of your choice.  Embellish your design through embroidery or by adding buttons.


Secure the front of your heart to the back of your heart by doing a simple running stitch around the boarder.


Attach a pin to the back of your heart and it becomes a brooch.


Whether you get detailed in your embroidery...


or chose a simple design...


these embroidered felt hearts will have your Valentine mooning over them.
