With Valentine's Day just two weeks away, I thought it would be fun to sew up some pretty heart ornaments!
I started by weaving the front fabric panels in an off-white wool, with a band of red wool rosepath going through each section.
Each band of rosepath differs, so while all the hearts were cut and stitched from the same woven fabric, each is still an individual... just like our own hearts.
I used an off white Kona cotton fabric for the back, placing the seam in the middle, as I think items stuff better that way, and it's very easy to stitch the seam closed with an invisible hand-stitch. To add a little extra-special detail, I embroidered little x's down each seam.
Kiss, kiss, kiss, x, x, x.
Twill seam binding was just right for making the hanging loops.
These handwoven heart ornaments can be found in my shop here.
You can also try making your own heart ornaments by substituting the handwoven fabric for heavy-weight muslin and a band of pretty, store bought, woven ribbon stitched in place!
Here's to a happy February!
