It was my childhood hobby to make cute felt plushies. These are cute, little, fun tiny miny things to make on a weekend.
|(Few of the colors available at Itsy Bitsy)|
I have used the thin cut heart dies in different sizes to cut through felt. And these dies cut the felt like butter.
Lets start making these....
I have used blanket stitch to sew together the bigger pieces and fill the plushie with cotton. Blanket stitch is the easiest when it comes to putting these little pieces together.
You can either choose a same color thread or shaded thread for a cool effect.

For the base of each plushie cut 2 large heart pieces in yellow, pink, blue colors.
Notice the intricate scallop design in the smallest heart also. That is how fine these dies cut.
These days there is an ongoing shaker mania, so here is a cute little felt shaker.
For this have cut the center using the second largest die in the set and used ohp sheet and filled granules & sequins. Have used blanket stitch to sew the edges.
The best part about shaker embellishments is you can pretty much put anything inside the belly.
