- Chose a heart shape that you like and cut out 2 pieces from fabric.
- Place the 2 pieces together with right sides facing and sew around the edge, leaving a 4cm (about 2 inches) gap unsewn.
- Turn the heart inside out and fill it with stuffing.
- Hand sew the gap close.
- Hand sew a piece of ribbon to the top of the heart.
To decorate the hearts:
a. With beads: Hand sew the beads around the edges in a design of your choice. Also add beads to the fabric itself. Since the fabric that I used had tiny rose buds I beaded each of the buds.
b. With lace: If you like to have a lace edge then in step 2, pin the lace between the 2 fabric hearts around the edge and sew through the 3 layers around the edge.
These hearts are on the reverse side of the hearts above. I actually made each side of the heart different. The one on the top left looks like a strawberry - oh, I think my next project is going to be fruit decorations! Stay tuned...
