Friendship heart

I am linking this post once again to Stephanie's Roses of Inspiration link up . Stephanie had done some sweet hearts for her cousin and you can read about that HERE . She mentioned at the end of the post that maybe someone you know is struggling with something and my friend came to mind right away and I thought yes I am going to make her a heart and hopefully every time she looks at it she is reminded of all those that love her.

My first idea was to stamp on the fabric and then stitch the lettering in..... well because of how small the stamp was and I had stamped it a little thick at points when I tried to go over the letters with the stitching it did not work at all, so I took the stitching out and used my ultra fine sharpie pen to at least highlight the word heart.

My friend Loves pink, so that is what made me go with this fabric and then when I found this already made flower in my stash I thought that would be perfect with how I was going to stitch up the hearts, it has stuffing inside too.

I stamped on the fabric first, cut out the heart shapes, I sewed the stamped heart to the front of the top heart, then put the two hearts wrong sides together and started stitching them all together, adding the stuffing when I had it almost stitched together, the last bit I added the piece of lace so she could hang it if she wanted too, and then stitched the remaining hole shut with the lace inside.

Here is a close up of the stamping.

There is still time before Valentines if you want to make one of these it went together in one evening for me.  But who wouldn't love it at any time :)

Your friendships warm my heart too, thanks for sharing your lives with me.

Thanks so much for stopping by,

These are darling, Connie. Just sweet enough to melt your heart. I think they'd be fun to hang on doorknobs on Valentine's Day, ring the doorbell and run away - like a May basket!
