I love crafting and one of the things I’ve always wanted to try was needle felting.

It’s not something I’ve ever seen anyone do, so I got really excited over coming across this excellent simple tutorial from the Honestly WTF blog. Not only does this show you how to needle-felt, but you can wear your work of art too!

Just looking at this makes us feel all warm and fuzzy!

Below are previews are some steps involved with making this.  The full set of instructions can be found on the Honestly WTF blog

Materials you’ll need, a nice well fitted long sleeve shirt, and a heart shaped cookie cutter.

Perfect use for cookie cutters!

Poking the wool into the shirt so it’ll stay there

The heart should be poked thoroughlyImage

The finished product – view from the outside and inside of the shirt

The final step is to iron over the heart for a little bit for the perfect finish!

This would be the perfect “heart-felt” gift for this Mother’s Day on Sunday.
