For this project I took a plain fabric hanging heart from Country Love Crafts. Painted it all over, twine too, with DecoArt SoSoft fabric paint in Indian Turquoise and also painted a piece of white rick rack ribbon. On a small scrap of my own calico, I placed the pretty floral stencil and used a sponge dabber to stencil through with the Fuschia, and a little Turquoise in the middle. Once all were dry I stitched the rick rack onto the hearts attaching some sequins and beads as I went along. I cut out and stitched on the flowers just in the middle, adding the flower sequin and a bead to each. I printed out the words onto card and stuck them on with some pva glue.
Here are the main products used. Have a go, it's easy!
