Stripey Hearts



I have been tres busy working on a little secret project that I hope to reveal at the end of this week. That means that I haven't been working on any 'day of hearts' business, oh dear me!

So I took a look back in time to a project that makes a fine last minute Valentine, or anytime project really, and that my friends would be a garland of stripey hearts!

Simply follow my tutorial on making Happy Stripey Ornaments HERE, only instead of sewing your strips of fabric to a sheet of paper, sew them onto a square/sheet of felt. Then out of that you would cut out heart shapes, as many as you please. Finish by sewing around the outer edge of the heart and attaching a loop of ribbon or yarn to the top of the heart in the process. Then string your hearts into a pretty garland of love! Easy peasy no?

And oh so pretty!

Gorgeous. My daughter wants a princess party this year. The little princesses might be getting some of these as party favours :)

So very pretty! I've been so wrapped up in all my "busy work" that all I managed this year was the 45 Valentines required for class parties and a large birdhouse-style box for receiving Valentines, also required for a class party. Once I'd done that, I intended to make a fun hearty garland and then realized I was just plain out of time. Oh well!
