Valentine´s Day freebie - Sweethearts

Hello lovely readers!!!
Wow, it´s been a while!!! But – Valentines´s Day is just around the corner and I thought it is time for a freebie! Let´s spread the love and make some sweethearts!!!

Let´s get started!!!

Sweetest Valentine´s Sweethearts
Fabric scraps to piece the Sacher cake slice or truffle
Felt for the heart
Ribbon for the hanger
Printed out paper piecing template for the Valentine´s Sweethearts
Using your template piece either the cake slice or truffle (or both!).
Cut out one heart from felt with hole and one without.
Remove the paper from your paper pieced design and pin it to the back side of the heart with hole to let it peek through the hole. Pin to secure.
Stitch around the hole, close to the edge to secure the fabric to the felt. (I like to go around several times to give it a fancy look!).
Take your piece of ribbon and secure it on the right side of the full heart (this will determine how long your hanger is going to be. You can also skip this step if you don’t want a hanger at all!)
Layer the heart front and back on top of each other. The heart with hole and paper pieced design goes on top of the back heart. Secure with pins and carefully stitch all the way around the heart. Done!
