I am back today to share the quick puffy-heart picture tutorial. I am not a sewing pro by any means, and these are fun with fabric but I wanted some puffy embellishments for the cards so I translated it with patterned paper. (They use up scraps too, bonus!)
Please let me know if you have any questions, if the pictures don't answer them.
Once you have filled and adhered the heart together (leaving a little trim of patterned paper above one of the hearts) stitch completely around the bottom heart. When you are done stitching, you will have a section that has not created a finished seam on the back of the hearts, however, most of it is sewn closed and the hot glue I use to adhere these (start with pushing from the bottom of the heart upwards to dry) closes them off and there is no batting showing. If you want a heart that is sewn closed you would align the two hearts perfectly (and could use card stock for one of the hearts since you won't be seeing it)
Here is the card I created using one of these puffy hearts
Heartfelt love card
sentiment inside reads: today & every day
I hope you have a chance to try some of these out on one of your projects.
