this pinned and once I went to at the tutorial I noticed it is in Chinese and even when Google Chrome translated it there weren't any instructions. So I wrote up a tutorial for you guys and I even remembered to take pictures!
Felt Hearts GarlandAll you need is felt (I used about 1/6 of a yard of each color) and your general sewing materials. Try to get stiffer felt
- Cut the fabric 4.5 inches wide. Mine was felt by the yard but it you use the sheets just cut them in half lengthwise. Sew up one long edge of each color.
- Draw with a fabric pencil every inch horizontally one color on the inside and one color on the outside. This is important! Cut the color that you marked on the outside along those lines. The other color turn inside out and line up the edge and sew. Cut along the lines.
- Take the unfinished hearts (mine are pink) and hook together two finished hearts (mine are red). Turn inside out and sew the bottom edge. Continue on until your garland is finished. A trick for sewing these are to line them up and don't cut between the edge. See below.
When you're done it should look like this and you can cut it apart.
Here is the whole mantle!
