Heart "felt" valentine

Hi fellow crafters

As I mentioned yesterday I wondered what my little love bug would look like in felt. So I got cutting and stitching and this is what I came up with.

A "U pull on my heart strings" treat baggy.



I pieced the teddy using applique paper. I ironed all the pieces to the front of the baggy initially and then did a blanket stitch around the pieces.

Here is a pic of the appliqued bear, showing the pouch which has been left open for the heart on a string to fit into.



 
This is what the teddy looks like with the heart taken out of its pouch.

The baggy is made using:
2   5"x6"  pieces of pink felt (front and back of baggy)
1   5"x2" piece of pink felt (bottom of baggy)
1  10" piece of ribbon (handle)

Below are some visual "instructions" on how to sew the bottom of the baggy and proceed up the sides.














 
 

(Hope this makes sense.)

For FREE teddy image see this post.

Happy crafting.
