Week 1 decoration- Sewing Machine Heart

So here is the first little decoration! This was just a bit of fun and knocked up in an evening.

1. Cut two hearts out with pinking shears.

2. Backstitch around the edge by hand or on a sewing machine (like me), leaving a space for binding tape.

3. Fill with Lavender and close gap with binding tape in place.

Finishing off was never my strong point in the past but I enjoyed stitching on tiny grey beads in the centre of each dark star which made it a bit more special. By leaving long tales, I was able to stitch ends in neatly. Lovely!
