This two-toned fringed heart cushion aims to be simple and elegant, and might just make the perfect gift for kids to make for mum this Mother’s Day.
Over the last year or so I’ve been giving quite a few family workshops. I’ve found that a lot of people who can’t sew feel very intimidated at the thought of sewing something by themselves or with their kids. This has motivated me to design a variety of projects that require only two squares of felt. I’ve got to say it’s been a lot of fun and even I have been surprised at how much you can do with such a simple brief. This fringed heart cushion is one of these designs.
What you need
30cm X 30cm square of pink felt
30cm X30cm square of purple felt
What to do
Place the pink square on top of the purple square. Draw a heart shape onto the pink square. Pin the squares together and sew around the heart leaving an 8cm opening for stuffing.
Stuff with polyester fiberfill and sew the opening closed.
Cut fringes around the heart and trim to desired length.
