Something for the weekend {felt heart purse}

Something I wanted to start this year was a weekly tutorial or recipe post! Well I am 1 month late, but oh well.

Today I am sharing how to make these cute valentine felt heart shaped purses!

They are made in a similar method to my other mini felt purses.
Materials:
 o Felt in red, pink etc
 o 3″ Zipper, I am still using some I won from Zippit
 o Some ribbon for a loop
 o Pattern below (you need to open the image in full size to save and print it the right size)

Step 1
Cut out two heart shapes using the pattern from your felt. And cut a 6cm piece of ribbon

Step 2
Pin the straight edge of one of your hearts to the edge of the zipper. You want the joined part of the zipper to be about 1/2 inch away from the point of the heart. Sew along the edge of the heart and zipper

Repeat for the other heart too.

Step 3
If you want to add any decoration to your purse, add it now.

Step 4
Fold your ribbon in half and pin it to the opposite the zipper side of the heart, facing inwards.

Step 5
Fold the felt hearts together, with the zipper seam facing outwards (ribbon facing inside).
Sew around the edge of the heart, starting at one edge of the zipper, right the way around to the other edge.

Step 6
Snip around the curves and turn your purse right way out and give it to someone you love! (with a little sweetie note inside maybe?)
