Button Heart

As you may recall, one of my friends sent me a lovely Button Heart Kit for Christmas.  The kit is made by the company 'East of India' and included everything that I needed to make a Button Heart ornament.



Recently, I spent a very pleasant afternoon making my Button Heart.  I started by cutting out the fabric.


Then sewed the two sides together on my trusty sewing machine.


Clipped the seam allowances to make turning the heart right side out more straightforward.


Turned and stuffed the heart.


Added the label (provided in the kit) to the back and the ribbon to the front.


Stitched on all the buttons and found somewhere nice for it to hang.


Thank you Jan!  A lovely creative afternoon!!

  4. Very lovely.
    what does the back look like.
    How did you sew the buttons on without going thru the back?

    1. Thank you RoseMary! The back is shown in one of the photographs. It is plain linen with a 'stitched with love' label sewn on. There is a lot of stuffing in the heart so it is actually quite hard to sew through to the back when sewing on the buttons. Glad you like it and thank you for visiting!
