How to Make

  1. Make a heart shaped paper template and use to cut out two identical hearts from the hessian roll.
  2. On one heart use a biro to draw a rough plan of where you’d like your design to go, or if you feel confident you can stitch and design as you go.
  3. Use different colour embroidery thread to stitch your design, fixing at the back between colours.
  4. Once the design is complete, place the patterned heart on top of the back piece and stitch ¾ of the way round using a simple running stitch.
  5. Fill with your desired filling and then stitch up the remaining sides.
  6. Add a simple hanging cord and display in the home.

Top Tip

Fill the heart with dried flowers, lavender, or herbs for that extra special touch.
