Ok I know for you experts these are nothing at all, just a few minutes at a machine and voilà!  But for me however, still a complete novice, this is an achievement!

Some little soft hanging hearts to go on my 2 year old daughters door handle.  Smiley  Stuffed with an old soft, stretchy t.shirt cut into strips!  The hanger is wide ribbon folded and stitched - I only had wide ribbon around.  I hand stitched the first one, then machined the other two.  My first real experiment with machining curves too and happy to discover I could just leave the needle in and rotate a bit!  Easy peasy.

So happy with these and my other half loves them too.  Now I'm going to use the same fabric to make a matching heart shaped cushion. That's got to be the same but bigger so should be easy enough.  

Thanks to my Mum for the Cath Kidston Sew book she got me for Christmas which provided fresh inspiration, and to the loan of the sewing machine Smiley

Hi there Newbie,

I'm a newbie too and I love your hearts. So cool that you made something this cute with what you had. I find that it's so easy to get distracted because you first need to buy all the 'perfect' bits.

Looking forward to the big heart shaped pillow!




Say that again? Slowly....

Thank you  Smiley  I drew, cut and stitched the heart cushion last night and found an old cushion in the shed to use the innards, so I stuffed it today. Looking lovely and it's helping the transformation of my daughters room from baby's room to that of a little girls. Pics to follow...
