We had lots of fun making our felt Valentine's envelopes and we needed somewhere special to put them! Best place for mail is a mailbox! So here is a quick tutorial on how to make your own felt mailbox. I cut/stitched this freehand so you will need to be a tad savvy as it's fairly DIY and not very accurate/specific in it's construction!!
Here are the measurements I used to make this cute little sweetheart heart mailbox.
Here's what you'll need:
1 piece A3 stiffened felt
felt scraps for accents
Here's what to do:
Your base will be 4" x 8" and the top 8" x 12"... I use the rest of the stiffened felt to create my two ends once I have sewn the top and base together.
Miss Daisy wanted to help with some sticking. I then stitched over the hearts to secure them.
I use a whip stitch for these and it seems to work well, it's easy to sew and holds well. You could do a blanket stitch too I guess.
I also sewed on a little 'S' monogram to the front of the mailbox. You could put a 'house number' or the word 'mail' here if you like! And you're done! Be sure to add some cute felt envelopes and your little one will be writing notes and sending mail happily!
