How to make a heart shaped felt bag

Maryam here! I want to show you how to make a heart shaped bag out of felt.
You will need:
Some red, yellow and white felt.
Red thread
Cardboard cut into a heart, a circle and flower.
Tailors chalk
(I forgot to put it in the pic)

 Trace around the heart shaped cardboard with
the tailors chalk onto the red felt. Do this twice,
then cut them out.

 Cut out the flower and circle like you did the heart,
 then glue the circle on to the flower, and glue the 
flower onto the heart. 

Stitch around the heart using whatever stitch you
know. I used a blanket stitch. You can watch the
 following video to learn how to do it.

Don't stitch all the
way to the top. Leave a little space.

Next, sew the ribbon to the inside of the bag. 
You can sew over a few of the stitches already
there to keep it looking neat. You can put something
in the circle to make it pretty. I put a heart, you
could also use beads or a nice button.

Enjoy your new bag!

Ma'shaAllah!!! This is super cute :) I'm embarrassed to admit I don't know any kind of stiching ;)But hey, at least you provided a video, hehe.

Assalaamu alaykum Little Auntie, thanks for liking my tutorial. The blanket stitch is very easy. You should give it a go.

I enjoyed seeing this purse project. I thank God for leading me to this site. I help teach little girls about Christ and I needed a purse project for the lesson we are teaching them on their heart. God bless your hands and mind. :-)
