Sewn Heart Garlands

Do you need a last-minute Valentine craft? Try these sewn heart garlands. I was inspired by similar garlands I saw, cut from book pages and sewn with red thread, in a store window and decided to give it a go with what I had on hand...catalog covers. I just cut out a heart template, then cut twelve hearts for each garland from the thick, colorful paper. I sewed them together on my sewing machine. Simple.

Here is what they look like from inside the house on this blustery day-before-Valentine's-Day, lemon and blossoming plum trees in the background.

Here is another version I made with fancy scrapbooking paper, and sent to my Grandma--thanks to Cousin K. for the photo. (BTW, I don't scrapbook, but I do love the paper!)

I'll be back tomorrow to wish you a Happy Heart's Day...for now I am just going to turn off the laptop, and watch the rain.

  1. Oh, you are so creative and productive, Sara! I am always so impressed with your craft ideas. Meanwhile, I went out on a creative limb myself and bought my kids cheap candy from Target. I am mother-of-the-year FOR SURE!
