Sewing Tutorial: Valentine’s Garland

Valentine's GarlandI love the look of festive garland for all holidays, Valentine’s Day being no exception.  This colorful, fun garland is easy to create and highly customizable.

For the garland created in this tutorial, we will be using felt and/or vinyl sheets and ribbon.  You could also create the garland with card stock and twine if you’re not a sewer.

Materials Needed

  • Felt, stiffened felt, and/or glitter vinyl sheets. I like to use the 9X12 sheets you can buy at craft stores.  I’ve used four sheets for the garland featured. One piece of stiffened felt, two pieces of regular eco-fi felt, and one piece of glitter vinyl.
  • Valentine's Heart GarlandFusible/sewable stabilizer if you’re using regular felt instead of stiffened
  • Spool of ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Sewing machine
  • *Optional – Cricut or other paper cutting machine to cut out hearts. You certainly don’t have to use a Cricut, you can easily cut the hearts out by hand.
  • If cutting by hand you can use one of the heart templates provided in the tutorial.
