woven felt valentines hearts

wow, how did it get to be the end of january so fast? i'm leaving tomorrow (which is in a few hours) for a week long research trip to indonesia. but i wanted to leave you with another little valentine's day craft-woven felt hearts.

i used the lovely craft felt we have here in japan, and i recommend this link for the weaving instructions. these hearts were all made from 1 small sheet of red and white felt, with a little left over.

if you've never tried making these woven hearts before, i would recommend trying it with paper first, because i think you will have a better idea of how it works. but, actually, the felt is easier to handle then paper, because it's more stretchy and flexible.

Super cute! I was wondering, where in Japan do you get your felt? Is there a specific crafting district? I'm going to Japan later this year and I'd love to buy a few felt related things there :) Thanks!

Just thought I'd let you know you inspired me to make one of these into a small purse. I've linked back o you from my blog here: http://gailmade.blogspot.com/2010/02/felt-danish-heart-purse-tutorial.html
