Even if you don’t have an embroidery machine you can still complete this project, but consider investing in one if you’d like to do more embroidery in the future.
2. Felt Heart Chain
We all made paper chains as children, but did you know you could make one out of felt? This project can be made with just a few supplies: felt, staples, and ribbon. If you’re looking to make a more advanced garland, you’ll need your sewing machine.
A felt heart chain is a project you can do with your kids. Bring them into the gift making the process so they can create crafts for their loved ones.

4. Felt Envelopes
If you’ve got a lot of extra felt lying around, explore making adorable felt envelopes. They can be personalized with your recipient’s name on the front and make for a thoughtful gift. Your loved one can keep it for years to come as you add in new notes each year.
5. Heart Mini Quilt
If you love quilting, a heart mini quilt would make for the perfect gift. You can adjust the size based on whether you want it to be a small wall hanging or a lap quilt. It may take a lot of cutting, but the end result will be a beautiful heirloom your loved one will cherish.
