Here is another easy tutorial for making fabric Christmas decorations, a little fabric gingham heart.
You will need: scraps of cotton or polycotton fabric, scraps of felt, buttons, ribbon, polyester filling, paper and pencil, sewing machine (optional), needle and thread.
1. Find or make 2 heart shaped templates, a larger one and a smaller one. If you do not feel confident drawing a heart, you could print out a template or follow my instructions below for drawing a heart!
Draw round a cup. The cup I used for the larger heart had a diameter of 8 cm. Cut the circle out and fold in half. Starting about a third of the way along the fold draw half a heart shape. For the widest part, follow the curve of the circle. Cut out.
2. Cut out 2 larger hearts out of cotton or polycotton and 2 smaller hearts out of felt.
5. Fill with polyester filling and slip stitch the opening closed.
6. Sew a button onto either side.
The great thing about these is that once Christmas is over, you could hang them up in other places around your house!
