Plush Felt Pixel Heart
Plush Pixel Heart DIY

Stuff you'll need:
felt. scissors. thread. stuffing (sewing machine optional).
you could use any fabric, I used felt because it doesn't fray. If you want something washable..don't use felt..

    start sewing squares together, keep them laid out so you know what goes where, it can get confusing.
    I hand-sewed the squares because they were small and fiddly, this part could go much faster on a sewing machine. I used 3x3 (centimetre) squares the total heart turned out about 22cm's (8.7 inches).
