Two very quick and easy tutorials for Valentine’s Day Gifts which children can make.
MAKE A FELT HEART
You need felt, thread, needle, buttons, beads, ribbon
Choose a piece of felt
Use the template to draw a heart
Cut out shape carefully
TURN THE HEART OVER [so pen marks are on the back]
Use thread and beads to decorate the heart
Cut a length of ribbon for hanging up
Sew onto heart and sew a button over the ends
MAKE A GIFT BAG
Cut a piece of felt 10cm x 20cm,
2 pieces of ribbon 120cm long,
1 piece of lace 10cm long.
Decorate with beads and buttons
Sew the two ribbon handles in place
Cut the lace in half and sew across the ends
Fold the bag in half and sew up the sides.
Pop a gift inside.
If you need any more help with these…
…then come down to the EcoHouse in Leicester next Sunday- I shall be there from 12-3, helping children to make these and other suitably ‘hearty’ gifts!
