You guys! I have new felt craft projects for all of your crafty peeps!
I had so much fun working on these! They just bring so much happiness to my work space!
Introducing my newest patterns – the Happy Lil’ Cactus and Alpaca!
DIY Felt Cactus and Alpaca Sewing Patterns
This Alpaca pattern is the first of my felt animal patterns including wool roving with sewing felt. But do not fret! If you’ve never tried needle felting before, then this is a perfect way to dip your toes in!
As usual the pattern is meant to be hand sewn using felt! The Alpaca pattern and tutorial includes instructions on adding basic wire armature to the inside of the alpaca as well as how to sew a cute little saddle rug like the one shown in the pic.
These Happy Lil’ Cacti are a quick afternoon project. They make for a perfect accompaniment to the alpaca too, don’t you think?
They can be used as a nifty paper weight or pin cushion, or just for decorative fun!
And I’ve decided to give the cactus pattern away for FREE!
Head on over and check it out! And don’t forget to share with friends!
As always I’d love to see what you have created! Share, share, share away! Tag #delilahiris on posts!

If you’re looking for a fun Valentine’s Day craft to make then look no further! These palm sized, Hand Stitched Valentine’s Heart Felties are so fun and easy to make! The finished results are insanely adorable!
These little hand stitched heart felt dolls make for fun and cute handmade gifts, or even as a decoration. Add a string to make them as ornaments! They could even go on a cute kawaii necklace!
These felties really are super easy to make! I’m going to show you how to re-create this Valentines Day craft just how I did, with alternative no sew instructions for kids and those who’d rather not have to sew.
But I promise – even with all the hand stitching, these are fast to make.
Valentine’s Day Craft Idea – How To Make Kawaii Felt Heart Dolls
What you’ll need:
- felt scraps
- pipe cleaners
- needle and thread
- plush stuffing
- optional doll eyes, embroidery thread, or fabric markers
Step one: Cutting Felt Hearts
Begin by cutting out a pile of felt hearts. These could be cut by hand, or you can use my quick printable heart feltie pattern to trace the heart shape onto the felt.
Each Valentine’s heart feltie will need 2 equally sized, heart shaped felt pieces.
Step Two: Embroidered Faces
Next you’ll want to give your heart felties some character! I chose to use doll safety eyes, and embroidery thread to create the facial expressions on my dolls.
For a quick and easy way to add faces try using fabric paint or markers instead! Fine tipped sharpies work magic as well!
Step Three: Adding Arms and Legs
To add arms and legs to the hand stitched heart dolls you will sew some pipe cleaners into the middle of the dolls.
I sew mine in place by sending the needle halfway through the width of the felt. This way you can hold them into place inside of the doll without seeing any stitching on the outside of the felt.
For a super fast way to complete this step, use fabric glue or a hot glue gun!
Step Four: Sewing The Felt Hearts
Sew the two layers of heart shaped felt together, with the pipe cleaner arms and legs sandwiched between the layers.
Sew all the way around the outer edges of the heart until there is a small opening left. Use the opening to fill the inside of the heart with stuffing.
Once the heart feltie is stuffed full, sew the opening shut.
Step Five: Finishing Touches!
The last step to finishing the valentines heart felties is to create finished the arms and legs.
Trim the arms and legs to a smaller size using sharp scissors or wire cutters.
Bend the bottoms inward to create small loops as hands and feet.
Viola! You’ve create an adorable Valentine’s Day Craft project to share with your friends and family!
Have you created felties with my handstitched felt heart Valentine’s Day craft? I would love to see your creations! Feel free to share on social media, or email me pics of your work!
