I've been a busy bee making hearts. I love hearts and have loads around the house, fabric, wooden, twigs, metal.
I have been inspired by Cox and Cox who sell white wedding hearts in packs of 24. Because I am already married and I only wanted a couple I made them myself :)
I used a fabric sample from John Lewis and got both hearts out of one sample.
I draw a paper shape I was happy with then cut out 4 pieces.
Then I made up the hearts, filled and hand stitched the hole closed.
I then used some fine craft wire to poke through the fabric at the top of the heart, adding buttons and beads.
I finished off twisting the wire around the last bead so everything didn't fall off, making sure I had loads of spare wire to hang it with.
I was also inspired by Diane at Heartshaped, find her at
to make this heart. It's longer than I usually make but I love the shape. I will be making more like this me thinks.
I added loads of bits and bobs and am really pleased with the results.
Bee happy x
Have a delicious day!
