I have been making these for years! The first time I saw one was at my sister-in-laws home, on her dresser. It was beautiful! I decided to start making them myself. It is a fun craft project!
You will need:
your favorite colored material
cardboard heart to trace
needles and tread
lavender scent (use any scents you want)
beads and charms (optional)
Cut a heart out of card board about 6×6 or larger.
Trace on material; then cut out two heart patterns
Sew edge of heart 1/4 inch in; inside out. Leave a non stitched area about 1 1/2 inch wide, so you can stuff it.
After you sew, pull heart through non stitched hole, and turn right side out.
Then stuff with stuffing and scented potpourri.
Sew up hole.
Sew lace around edges of stuffed heart.
Sew on buttons, tassels, and or ribbon.
Have fun and decorate as you wish!
I make a loop in the back, so you can hang it if you want.
Make them fancy by using beads, and charms!
Put them in your lingerie drawer, in your closet to make your clothes smell good; even in your car!! Also give as gifts
Cut out any patterns you want, be creative!
