Then I saw an idea for a heart similar to this on someone's blog (...I should have pinned it, because I can't find it again to give credit!). The project I saw used paper hearts and beads. I had some pink fabric left from my fabric rose project, and decided to give it a try with fabric and buttons.
|I need to work on my photography skills! :)|
|To make the hearts, begin by pressing the rough side of an iron-on adhesive to the wrong side of your first fabric.|
|After pressing, remove the protective paper.|
|Press the wrong sides together of both fabrics to bond together.|
|Tie a button or bead to the bottom thread, and put a knot in the|
top thread to form a "hanging" loop.
Press the heart sides open to form the 3D effect.
|Cut three hearts, and sew a line of stitching down the center, leaving long threads on the top and bottom.|
