Felt Valentine Holders are quick to make with some basic sewing skills! These felt Valentine holders tie to the back of a chair and can be filled with Valentine’s cards, candy, or other treats.
All you need for these felt Valentine chair pockets is felt, ribbon, and a sewing machine.
(Technically you could sew these by hand, but they’re so much faster with a sewing machine.)
I made seven of these (one for each member of my family). This is one of those crafts that I decided to do on a whim, and it actually turned out successfully!
I was amazed at the wonderful response these Valentine chair pockets received from my family.
What followed was a feverish card-making session with Bibles opened to find verses on love (and I didn’t even suggest this!), paper cutting, and brothers and sisters encouraging and edifying each other through words and art. So very beautiful and precious!
Felt Valentine Holders
- 9″x 12″ craft felt sheets (like these) in whatever color you would like to use. I used a bright pink for the girls and red for the boys. You’ll need two sheets for each holder.
- Ribbon (not sure how much, but it takes quite a bit if you’re making as many as I did (7) !
- Sewing machine and thread, or you can use embroidery floss or twine if you’d like to use the blanket stitch to bind the edges. This takes longer, so I used my sewing machine for all but one.
- Lace, buttons, or other embellishments
I used a straight stitch on my machine and sewed backward and forward several times to tack them in place.
Tie To Back of Chairs
After you finish making them, simply tie them to the back of your dining room chairs (or wherever else you’d like to tie them).
These have been so much fun. So much love and creativity has been shared because of these!
I have a pile of lovely cards my children made for me as well. My oldest daughter said “Let’s make the most for Mommy, because she deserves it.” So sweet!
