Centre pattern sheet behind one piece of calico and trace stitchery design on to fabric with pencil.
Baste wadding behind traced calico. I glue baste mine with 505 Temporary Adhesive Spray.
Sew Stitchery design using back stitch and satin stitch for centre of flowers. I use 2 strands of embroidery thread.
Press stitchery design.
Using heart template from pattern, centre heart over stitched calico and cut out heart shape. Cut a second heart shape from other piece of calico.
Place calico heart shapes right sides together and sew together using ¼″ seams. Leave a 2″ gap in stitching for turning through.
Trim bottom point of heart and cut a notch at centre top of heart to avoid puckers when turning through (as shown).
Turn stitched heart through to right side and press.
Stuff heart fairly firmly with toy stuffing. I break up my stuffing as I stuff to avoid lumpy stuffing.
Invisibly slip stitch opening together.
Attach a hanging ribbon and bow.
You are now ready to hang your heart (not on your sleeve though).
