I was going to write a tutorial on how to make this heart but it is really simple, so I will just tell you quickly now. Cut two heart shapes out of linen. Print out the word "LOVE" in big bold letters, then cut each letter out of different fabrics (or for a more authentic hand-made look just free-hand cut the letters). Applique the letters onto the front piece of linen (I hand appliqued these with a blanket stitch but you can use a sewing machine), and embellish with a running stitch around the letters. Put the back and front of the heart together (right sides facing) and sew with a 1/4 inch seam allowance, trapping the hanging twine/ribbon at the top and leaving a 1 inch gap on one side. Cut off excess seam allowance with pinking shears, turn inside out, stuff with filler, and blind stitch the opening closed. Easy peasy.
Until next time then - when I shall be back with my finished valentine tags... In the meantime, I leave you with my pick of Valentine's Day inspiration from Pinterest. Have a great day!
