To Make Your Hearts:

1. Draw and cut out two hearts the same size from different pieces of fabric. Trace the inner heart shape on to Bondaweb and iron on to the back of a third fabric. Cut out and iron to the centre of a larger heart.

2. Sew around the inner heart in pink running stitch and stitch a pink button to the centre. Pin the right sides of the front and back panels of the heart together and machine stitch, leaving a gap to allow for filling.

3. Turn through and press flat. Fill with dried lavender or whatever is desired and carefully sew up the gap. Make a loop with the ribbon and sew on to the front of the heart at the top, covering the stitches with a tiny green button.

Little Tip

When turning the heart through to the right side, use a point like a pencil to push the bottom of the heart out fully.
