Children can practise their sewing skills to make this pretty felt heart pillow - then decorate it with odds and ends to make it really special. Perfect for Valentine's Day or Mother's Day.
You will need:
2 sheets of felt in pink or red
Beads, sequins, fabric paint etc to decorate
Needle and thread
Cut two large hearts from the felt using one of our heart templates. Decorate the two hearts with anything that you can find in your craft cupboard. You may decide to decorate only one of the hearts, or you may prefer an all over design.
When the fabric paint and glue is dry, use running stitch to sew the two hearts together. Leave a gap to stuff the pillow (we used fabric scraps but you could use toy stuffing).
Sew up the gap and knot the thread securely.
