How to Make a V-Day Heart

by Shaleena White

You can do this with any kind of scraps around the house. You never know what you can create with a little imagination. ;)

Supplies

  • Scraps of fabric
  • Scissors
  • Needle & thread
  • Sharpie
  • Pins
  • Stuffing/ Cotton
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    I'm actually going to use an old stocking to make the scarf. And yes, it's a giant stocking.

    Step 2

    Turn stocking inside out. At this point I normally will take some safety pins to keep both sides together

    Step 3

    Step 4

    Draw your heart with the sharpie. Not that depending on the fabric or material you use, it will bleed. So do what you got to do.

    Step 5

    You can make your hear as big or as small as you wish. My hearts always turn out funky as you can see.

    Step 6

    At this point get your thread and needle and thread the needle.

    Step 7

    I start to cut the bottom and then start sewing from there. I normally trim the heart as I work my way around the heart sewing it.

    Step 8

    When you are getting close to finishing, leave a gap. You'll need a decent sized hole, depending on how big your heart is, to reverse it to the inside.

    Step 9

    A few finger pricking later....

    Step 10

    Leave a hole to turn it inside out

    Step 11

    Step 12

    At this point, I go through and see if their is any "holes" that I need to go back over to sew.

    Step 13

    Here's one spot that needs to be fixed.

    Step 14

    Now that you have checked and fixed all the holes.... It's time to stuff if. Put as much stuffing/cotton that you feel is appropriate for your heart.

    Step 15

    This is what I use to stuff.

    Step 16

    Once stuffed finish sewing it up.

    Step 17

    I've done other heart too that have designs.

    Step 18

    Step 19

    Step 20

    That's one is hard to see. Sorry. But it says V- Day

    Step 21

    With your heart you can get creative and do what you want to. You can write a special not for someone or make a design.

    Step 22

    Hope you enjoy and have a great V day!!!! P.s. If you want to see a design I did, let me know which one. I can show you.
