Valentine fabric hearts DIY

I spent a few days at the beach house last week with three amazing women, Lorzel from Barnhouse Vintage Market, Debra from Debra Hall Lifestyle and Laurie from The Pink Porch Ventura. We spent a lot of time talking about Instagram but we also had some fun sharing DIYs. Each of us hosted a DIY which was really fun! Today I am thrilled to share Debra Hall from Debra Hall Lifestyle and her DIY to make fabric valentine hearts.

Debra brought vintage fabrics that were left over from the pillows she sells on Debra Hall Lifestyle. I was immediately drawn to the pink/red fabric as well as all of the neutral fabrics. All of the fabrics I used were cotton or linen.

How to Make Valentine Fabric Hearts

Step #1 – Cut out the Hearts

Cut out a heart pattern.  Be sure to fold over your paper and cut out half of the heart on the fold. This will ensure that the heart is even on both sides.

I made two different sized heart patterns. You can also sew a heart on top of a heart if you want!

Step #2 – Stich the Hearts

Sew along the outside of the heart, about 1’4″ from the edge with a running stitch. You can try to sew even stitches or not, both will look great. Stop stitching when you have about one inch left to stitch.

Step #3 – Fill the hearts.

You can fill the hearts with dried lavender or polyfill. I filled the small ones with lavender and the larger ones with polyfill. Once filled, continue stitching the heart and knot on the back to secure.

We had so much fun making these hearts. And we made a mess, which is always a good sign of a fun time.

I knew I wanted to put my hearts in this dough bowl so I guessed I would need about 11. (I always use odd numbers in my decor.)
