Valentine's Hanging Hearts

Despite the fact that I don't have anyone to share it with, Valentine's is my least favourite holiday. Its that time of year again when everything is heart-shaped and coloured pink or red. I have nothing against Valentine's day, in fact I'm getting into the crafty spirit of things, but if you are going to get me something please let it be thoughtful and not one of those overpriced trashy bunches of flowers.

Valentine's rant over, I made these hanging hearts today for a dear friend of mine, its all about love right? It is so simple to make, you don't even have to use a sewing machine, and it looks so cute!

You will need:
Two pieces of felt, the same size. It really doesn't matter what length you use, but try and make sure the width is at least 3 inches.
Needle and thread.

How to:
Sew the pieces of felt together, length ways. Then turn the felt inside out and sew the other length, you will find that the fabric shapes itself into a heart as you sew.
Cut the fabric into the desired thickness for your 'hearts'. Mine are around 1 inch wide, each.
Using a wide-eyed needle, threat the ribbon through the felt hearts and knot at each end.

Hang in your house, or send to a friend!
I hope you have a go at this craft. If you do, send me a photo; I would love to see them hanging in your home.
