Upcycled Sweater Hearts

I love Valentine's Day!
Here is another idea for you to use up some of your old sweaters, and better yet, the scraps from your other upcycled projects.
Here is a tutorial showing you how easy it is to make these patchwork hearts.  You will have a bunch made up in no time.

Cut out fabric pieces using sweaters of your choice.
With Right Sides Together (RST) sew piece 1 to piece 2.  Open that up and place pattern piece 3 (RST) and sew together.
If you want to hang your heart, baste a ribbon, jute or thick string on the right side of the heart back piece.
Gather the string or ribbon up and pin in the center of the heart, so it won't get caught in the seam.
Place the pieced heart top to the bottom piece (RST) and pin in place.  Sew all the way around leaving about a 2" opening to stuff the heart.
Turn inside out and stuff firmly.
With a needle and thread, slip stitch opening closed.
Ta Dah!

Sew a bunch up for all your Valentine's, or just fill a basket full of hearts for a fun holiday decoration!
