Step 1: Cut a piece of rectangle from the pink crafting felt. The dimensions should be at least 30-centimeter in length and 10-centimeter in width. The dimensions are flexible since you can cut this based on your needed size. This will be the body of the pouch.
Step 2: Cut a medium-sized heart from the red crafting felt.
Step 3: Place the heart in the middle part of the pink body. This should be placed on the one-third portion from the top of the body. Sew this heart using a running stitch near the side of it.
Step 4: Fold the top and the bottom ends of the pink body towards the back portion of it. The back portion is the portion where the red heart is not visible. The folds would be at least 1 to 1.5-centimeter in width. Sew this using a running stitch.
Step 5: Fold the pink body into two equal parts and sew the sides of it using running stitch. Leave the topmost part open. Do not stitch the folded parts on top.
Step 6: Insert the yarn on the pipe opening on the topmost part of the pouch.
Step 7: If you are having a hard time inserting the yarn to the small pipe hole, you can use a stick to guide the end of the yarn on the other side. This will make your life easier.
Step 8: Cut the end of the yarn once you decided how long you want your yarn is.
Step 9: Create a loop at the ends of both yarn on the left and right.
Step 10: You can now place your precious gift to this lovely heart pouch.
Step 11: Pull the yarn tightly to seal the pouch.
