Three Surprise Hearts

Three Surprise Hearts

My husband purchased 3 hearts (4x3 inches) at a craft shop. He knotted them all together with a fancy knot (Sapajou). He put our names on them and surprised me by hanging them on our kitchen door!

Approximate Time: 30 minutes

Supplies:

Instructions:

Drill holes 1/2 from the middle of the hearts (below the top center point) and paint them red. Knot one end of the rope. String rope through each heart. Bring the knotted end of the rope up to the other end of the rope. Space each heart approximately 22 inches apart.

Between each heart, pull the center of the rope so that you have a loop. The unknotted end of the rope should be looped as well to match the two loops.

Ad

Take the knotted end and wrap around the loops about 6 to 7 times from top to bottom, leaving the wraps slightly loose because the knotted end needs to be slid in between the wraps so the knot comes out the top of the wrap.

Pull the knotted end while holding the bottom of the wrap so that the wrap tightens around the loops. Adjust loops and hearts as needed to align hearts in top to bottom order.

I made these 4 plastic hearts in about an hour. I cut out the hearts from the plastic canvas, the size I wanted. I choose pastel yarn colors. I then finished the hearts and put little sayings I chose. I chose UR CUTE, Sweet, I LOVE YOU, and KISS ME in red thread. I hot glued a small magnet on the back and I hung them on my fridge.

This easy-to-make accessory will dress up any blouse or cardigan on Valentine's Day.

Approximate Time: About 30 minutes

Supplies:

Instructions:

Draw and cut out 3 felt hearts in graduating sizes from each color of felt. Cut the largest one using regular scissors and the other two using pinking shears for a decorative edge. The largest heart should be about 3 inches. Cut a vertical slit in the middle of the smallest heart, then lay it on top of the middle heart as a guide and mark and cut matching slits. Repeat with the middle heart to make a slit in the largest heart. Glue the three hearts together, stacked on top of each other, as shown. Slide the heart over the top button of a cardigan or blouse.

This item is a quilted wall hanging. Hearts are attached with a blanket stitch and have ribbon strings attached to each heart. There are loops at the top for hanging on a rod.

Approximate Time: 1 day

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Cut one piece of fabric for quilt front, approximately 25x26 inches.
    Ad

  2. For the backing of your choice, cut 26 1/2x27 1/2 inch piece of fabric.
  3. Cut out hearts from different scraps of heart themed fabric or anything of your choice.
  4. Attach hearts to front quilt fabric with a blanket stitch. I put mine in a circle with one in the middle.
  5. Next attach red ribbon so that they all come together in one place like you would balloons. These need to be tacked down about every 2 or 3 inches with a bar tack.
  6. Now you are ready to assemble the quilt. Lay out the back fabric with right side down.
  7. Next layer the batting over the back then sandwich it in with the top of the quilt.
  8. Hand quilt around each heart and a zig zag pattern to fill in on other areas of the quilt.
  9. Fold edges of the back of quilt over the front to make the edging and whip stitch it down.
  10. With the fabric from the back of the quilt cut a strip of fabric 2 1/2 inches wide and 12 inches long.
  11. With right sides folded together make a seam the length of the fabric. Turn and cut into 4- 3 inch sections. Serge each end of the 4 section. Fold in half and attach to top of the quilt evenly spaced.

Cut lace about 14 inches, then fold over and sew a seam to slip a piece of 4 inch pipe cleaner in it. Make sure the lace is gathered. Then glue 2 red hearts in the center. I bought mine at a Dollar store.
