Step 1 Cut out heart shape according to pattern – two big hearts and two small hearts
Step 2 Stitch the smaller heart into the middle of the big heart with a straight stitch*.
Step 3 Cut approx. 8in ( 20 cm ) of ribbon. Tie a knot at one of the ends of the ribbon.
Step 4 Start stitching the two big hearts together with a blanket stitch** . At the place marked at the pattern tuck the knotted ribbon between heart pieces so that it is also fixed. Leave some space open for stuffing, as marked at the pattern.
Step 5 Stuff the heart figure with cotton and stitch it shut.

*Straight Stitch is great for attaching the small applique piece to a larger one. This is one of the basic stitches.
**Blanket stitch is usually used to reinforce the edge of a material or to stitch two edges together, like in our case.
Happy St. Valentine’s Day Everyone! <3
