Red and Black Week: Heartsy Spider- Craft

Today is Day 3 of Red and Black Week, and Victorian Kitty shows us a Fabulous little red dress.

This is a heart-shaped spider that would make a cute Valentines day gift or Yule gift!

Need:

Red and black felt

Black thread

Heart template

Spider leg templates

2 Buttons (main eyes)

6 Eye buttons

Glue (I used Gel glue)

Stuffing of some kind- I used rice and cottonwool.

 

  • Cut out templates for a heart and some spider legs.
  • Pin the templates onto the Felt, I used red felt for the heart and black felt for the legs. (The felt should be two pieces i.e two hearts, the same should be done with the legs, I used 4 different shapes/sizes)

  • Cut them out.
  • On one of the hearts sew on the buttons for two of the eyes

  • Glue the matching leg pieces together so that you have 8 legs

  • Start sewing the two hearts together adding on the legs while doing so

  • When you get near the end, leave an opening and stuff the heart
  • Finish sewing it up
  • Glue on the eye-buttons
