Hearts for Christmas in Shabby Colours

Christmas, gulp is coming, and I feel the need to make beautiful decorations for the house. So this is the latest.

It really is a quick and simple heart to make and will look fabulous on a few dried twigs. 

To make it you will need:

Cotton thread.

To make this heart:
Sew the buttons on to one side of the heart shapes. Use both and medium and small buttons.
Stitch around the edges with blanket stich. Leave enough room to fill the heart with wadding and to stitch in the ribbon.

Have entered this for the 'Fab 'n' Funky' Button it Up challenge.
