5 Minute Scrappy Hearts

written by Sarah

These fast, little projects are such a great way to let that pent-up creative energy flow. Even 5 minutes of sewing is 5 minutes well spent. These little hearts are great for any occasion, not just Valentine’s Day. Can you really go wrong with the symbol of love? I say, “nay’.

Grab your scrap stash and mix/match prints for a cool, scrappy-chic vibe. The more prints, the better.

You can really make anything with these little hearts, from a set of coaster to a refrigerator magnet, to a adorable bunting for your fireplace.

Tip: If you want to get extra fancy, hand embroider the initials of you and your sweetheart.

Step 1

Trace half a heart shape on the fold of your fabrics.

Cut rectangles (larger than the hearts) out of batting, stabilizer, and fleece.

Use basting spray to stack the hearts largest to smallest and to adhere the hearts on to the batting, stabilizer, and the fleece.

Step 2

Satin stitch or zigzag stitch the raw edges, just like applique. I really, really, really recommend using a walking foot.

Step 3

Carefully trim the excess batting and fleece from around the heart.

And that’s it! Seriously, wasn’t that fast? Even when you have a truck load of responsibilities staring you in the face, a little project can be such a stress reliever. After all, sewing time is your time. Enjoy it!
