Hello everyone! I'm finally doing a Sewing Saturday! Yay! Before I start, I just want to tell you, the pictures aren't so good and the end result is the same. I took these pictures 2 days ago on the second attempt of making them so it isn't great. This takes a bit of practice but I've made 5 of them so far and the last 3 have been awesome. So I hope your end result doesn't look like my end result in this one. I'm sorry! I'll totally make another one and show you guys so you can see the real end result. Okay, let's get sewing!
Let's Make A Heart Chain!
Today's craft uses something called a charm pack. Charm packs are 36-42 precut 4x4 squares that sewers use for quilting. But since quilting is not so easy to do I decided to teach you all how to make something more fun with charm packs, a heart chain!
YOU WILL NEED:
4-10 squares (I used 4 because I didn't have much time)
A needle and thread or a sewing machine.
Love to put in the hearts!
First, take a square and fold it in half. Pin at the top if wanted.
Now, cut from the fold a heart shaped piece. You should have two hearts now.
Put the two hearts together (wrong sides together) and sew along the edges with your machine or needle.
(Like I said, doesn't look amazing.)
Continue sewing all the hearts like you did with the first one.
Sew the hearts together anyway you think is best. I did it straight across all of the hearts.
Enjoy your heart chain and make more to give to everyone you love!
|Probably my worst heart chain ever, but that's okay!|
I hope you enjoyed today's craft and tomorrow we are doing Sunday Showcase so if you want your blog to be featured, just let me know in the comments. Or if you know of any other cool blog to be featured.
