Video: How to Sew a Blanket Stitch Heart

Hello everyone! I’m back home in the USA and that means sewing videos! For my first video I just wanted to demonstrate a really simple craft you can do to get used to hand sewing and fabric marking and cutting:

Here’s a video demonstrating how I made this. The ending got cut off awkwardly but hopefully you can still follow what I’m doing.

The materials I used are:

  • Felt fabric – cut by the yard then cut into a square
  • Embroidery thread, double threaded
  • Embroidery needle
  • Tailor’s chalk
  • Pins
  • Scissors
  • Polyester pillow filling

I only had to buy the fabric, filling, needles, and thread for this specific project and it cost me under $15. I have plenty of material left over to make many more!

And that is the first original Sew Me Your Stuff video! Thanks so much for watching. Let me know if you try this and how it turns out! You can do any shape in any color so I think this is a great craft for beginners. It was actually my first time doing a shaped pillow so I had some mistakes along the way, but I’ll definitely be exploring this more.

Have a great week!
