♥ Want to have a go at making something?
It is very girly but I love it and have made the heart with scraps from my fabric box. Follow the steps below along with the slideshow and see what you can create.
Why not replace the heart shape with one of your own designs then use the steps below to create your card.
What do you need?
Paper, pen, fabric scrap, batting scrap (optional but will make your heart nice and puffy, you can get this from any good fabric store or search online), scissors, embroidery thread, tapestry needle, glue (I used UHU), card & envelope (I got mine from Paperchase).
Make it like this….
Step 1: Draw a heart shape on a piece of paper and neatly cut it out.
Step 2: Draw round your heart cut out twice onto your desired fabric. You will need to draw one heart on the right side of the fabric (the side that you want showing on your card), then turn it over and draw round the heart on the wrong side. of the fabric.
Step 6: Using embroidery thread, stitch evenly around the edge of your heart. TIP: don’t pull your thread too tight or the heart will start to bunch up. I did two rows of stitching but ones looks fine too.
Step 8: Write something soppy in it and post it to someone you fancy!!
HAPPY MAKING ♥
