These Plump hearts are knitted first then washed to shrink them into felt!
Knit as many as you wish,then thread the felted hearts onto craft sting, to make beautiful bunting
After a simple 40 degree wash the knitted stitches disappear, and soft seamless felt hearts are created.
Felt Heart String
The art of Knitting, Issue 35
These felt hearts are addictive to make, and a great way to use up any left over felting yarn.
Felting is such an easy technique and these little hearts are an ideal first project.
If you are impatient to get to the felting stage quickly, theses hearts are just right, It only took me a couple of evenings to knit a string full.
Each heart is knitted in one piece, and using a clever bit of seaming becomes heart shaped and ready to fill with hi-lift poly fibre toy stuffing.
Do take care when you stuff them, use only a very little stuffing because they shrink in the wash and compress the fibres. If overstuffed they can’t shrink!
