Lack of sleep and ill children off school gave me some unexpected time to blow the dust of my sewing machine and put it to use this afternoon. I needed to do something more creative than housework and settled poorly man in front of a dvd. I wanted to start making this gorgeous dress for a birthday coming up far too quickly but I knew the chance of interruption were high so opted for a more simpler project instead.
Valentines day is just around the corner so I quickly made some hearts to hang. I took a few photos along the way:
|First step - cut out|
1. Cut out two hearts from a gorgeous piece of fabric (I used a felt heart as a template but you could easily draw one on paper to use)
2. Sew hearts together right side facing together, leave a gap of about three centimetres, along a straight side.
