Step 6: (optional)

If you plan to embellish your hearts i.e. the edges

This is the time to do it.

I used embroidery floss

to Blanket Stitch over the rounded edges

of my fabric shapes.

Woven Heart Handles

 To make the Woven Heart handles,

I cut a 23cm x 1.5cm strip of fabric from

my (bonded) fabric.

To match my hearts,

I added Blanket Stitch to both side

of the handle.

  1. Very, very pretty! Shame my other half saw a Christmas craft program recently and said to me very specifically that he didn’t want the house decorated with hearts everywhere (they had a garland of hearts strung across the fireplace!). Maybe he’ll have forgotten about that by next year!!

  2. Thank you Sharon Fiona for your lovely feedback.
    @Fiona…if your husband is anything likew mine, he will definately have forgotten by next Chritsmas…or maybe you could butch up your hearts 😉
