Cute little fabric hearts, stuffed full of love <3
Easy to make, cute to look at, lovely to give :D

Any questions? just ask!
Gather your supplies
Use template to draw 2 hearts on fabric
Fabric can be the same, co-ordinating, clashing - whatever takes your fancy :D
Place right sides together and sew along outline using backstitch (or machine)
Remember to leave a small gap for turning and stuffing.
Cut out, leaving an 0.5-1cm seam allowance.
Snip around curves.
Turn and stuff, before closing the gap with tiny stitches.
Embellish with hanging loop, buttons, bows etc
For a different look, cut around template and over stitch/ blanket stitch/whip stitch wrong sides together.
Sew hanging loop in at step 3 (remember to place ribbon loop inside, between the right sides, and catch the loose ends with your outline stitching)
Make a scented sachet by adding dried flowers or herbs to the stuffing at step 5. Lavender works well.
Alternatively, shake a few drops of essential oil onto stuffing.
