ANOTHER HEART....

Yesterday morning I found a pair of jeans belonging to Niamh that had a big hole in the knee so I decided to see what I could make out of it... I cut a 14cm heart from the Cricut using the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge in scrap card and used it for a template to draw round...
I then printed out the word 'love' on the wordprocesser to use as a template for stitching, I over stitched and then just pulled it away when I was finished (should have done a photo of this stage but I keep forgetting...). I blanket stitched in red round the outside, I always have trouble starting and finishing this stitch for some reason... it's a bit wonky in some places, hence the button sewed at the middle... I also couldn't work out how to get the hanging ribbon in so I just sewed it on at the back along with the button.... In hindsight as I am typing I should have sewn a button on the back as well to hide where the ribbon is attached but you live and learn right????

POST UPDATE..... Just checking out some other blogs and found this on Gingerscraps blog - how weird is that!!!!!
