This is the very first project I ever tried using a sewing machine. Like many others, the thought of using a sewing machine was intimidating. After tackling this easy project, I realized that the sewing machine isn't that intimidating. You can go as slow as necessary when sewing the hearts together and you don't need to worry about keeping a perfectly straight line. So if you are like I was and read 'sewing required' and decided it was too hard to try, please keep reading.
Approximate time: 30 minutes to an hour depending on desired length and how much of a perfectionist you want to be.
Find a place to hang your garland. Step back and admire.
In the close up picture, you can see I used white thread and had a few stitches between each heart. Mine are not perfect, but I think that's what gives it a homemade charm.
