Valentines Heart Pocket Project Tutorial:
1. Cut out 2 matching heart shapes out of fabric. I used an old vinatge housecoat cut up! Cut out 2 wing designs out of your favorite heavy cardstock in a wing shaped design-see photo. Place onto a peice of woolfelt & sew around edges of white wings. Cut out around with pinking shears so you wool shows a bit behind.
2. Sandwich your wings in between your 2 fabric hearts. If your fabric is thin you can interface them or just sew in a peice of cardstock inbetween the layers to stiffen it up. Sew around entire heart sewing wings inside. You will have raw edges all around! I love it-too easy! You can use pinking shears if you want!
3. Hand sew on ribbon to hang & buttons, and decorate to your hearts desire. I used glitter,papers,vinage buttons,trims,tule,and vintage ricrac.
