Kawaii DIY Valentines Ideas Felt Hearts


Hello Cuties - again here is my last post for the run up for Valentines day! 
I will be doing all my backing and chocolate making on the Thursday so its all freshly made for the 14th to give to my Valentines. I wonder if I will get many cards ( Heehee!!) Yea right! I will  Lucky to even get a card! (n_n)But this post again like the last one can be altered to what you want to use it for!
Today let's make Hanging felt hearts!
(sorry for the crappy Phone photos I cant load up any Camera ones at this time.)
Yay..What you will need is the following.
Sheets of Red felt
A heart template or shape to use as a guide
A pencil to trace the shape on the felt.
A needle
Thread
Scissors.

To start with you should get your heart shaper template and trace around it on the red felts. You do not need to use heart as you can pick any shape you want but cause is near Valentines day I picked hearts. Also they are very cute too. You can pick any colour of felts for your hearts as well so don't let what I have picked limit you in any way. Once you have traced out your shapes you will need the scissors for cutting them out.

Once you have cut them all out I made about 12 single hearts and paired them up to make them double sided, *DON'T throw away any scrap felt!* I paired up the hearts with the pencil showing on the outside and then took my thread and needle and started to do a simple stitch around them but not completely sewing them up, as I then turned them inside out.
Using the left over felts I used that to stuff the insides of my hearts making them into tiny plushie hearts. Make sure you cut up the extra felts into smaller pieces so they fit into the hearts hehe. Then finish sewing up the cute little heart. (^.~) Kawaii!

Do this with your paired up hearts and you should then have 6 plushie cute hearts. Know with the thread you will want to cut a long piece for string them all together as well. So make sure you have plenty thread.Starting with the first heart string it from the top of the heart in the middle and then thread on the second one from the bottom and the top. That way it will swing about less when hung. And then do the same with the rest till you get to the last one. Once at the top make sure to loop your thread and then its ready for hanging up!

Like I already said you don't have to stick with my guidelines of shape and colour. Why not make some stars or Clouds or what about rainbow coloured felts. Also you could add any sort of extra decorations for extra Kawaii fun!

I cant wait to see every one making Kawaii valentines ideas!
Feel free to send me pictures of your Kawaii Valentines DIY's I bet they are super cute.

Till next time!
<3 Stay cute.

Kawaii Photography

Hey every cutie, how are you all?
Well ,by know you would have noticed that I've added a new section on my blog of photography. Or if you have not look at the tabs at the top of my blog.
So this year is my year of a new adventure and project, I cant tell you to much about it..well cause I have not really done much with the project so far. Why?
Because I have not been to any conventions yet!  To be fair this years 1st convention will not be till the end of March in which I will be working on my other project too. However it gives me a great opportunity to get a taste on my photography project , which will be taking as many Kawaii photos as possible.
This year I enrolled in a few work shops in my local area and already have one under my belt and even with the basic knowledge applied to my photos of late they have improved vastly.  Am also lucky to have 2 willing models one being my cat and of course Chibi bean. There will be a vast change in my photos for the blog as am using it as practice and am very lucky to live in a area that is some what very pretty and lots of wild birds can be found some which are a bit shy... or you can find some who love to pose .Kawaii!

Last month I got my new Camera , I shall be working with a easy entry level DSLR Nikon 3200. Its a nice camera. I have lots to learn and have lots of time to prepare for conventions and any photo shoots I will be attending. Am super excited  and I can not wait ...Kyaaaah really can not wait for this year to get ready to roll !As well as getting my camera I will be building on my kit am only working with the bog standard lens for now.

So I will be at lots of convention's  mostly in scotland. I will be darting about for snapping away photos, I will be looking for Cosplayer's Fashion lover's and those who just look really Kawaii and cool looking as well as Kawaii products and Cute stalls so if you do recognise me please give me a shout ''Hey Tartan.'' gets my attention.  Also I have started up a Photography page '' Tartan Le Cuirot Photography,''on Facebook to act as a mini portfolio and that way you can all have a look and tag yourself! Yay!

This weekend is my 1st weekend out and about with my Camera in the city, Am hoping to take lots of photos around the city and looking for kawaii things to photograph. Also there is alot of interesting things in the city to look for. I wanted to mix my 2 passions of Kawaii and taking photos together and with my creative flare I hope I will make some great images. So I am going to be really busy!
Until then , here is my all time favourite photo I have taken with my old camera, Of the little blue Totoro gazing out the window for some adventure....
