Here is a lavender heart that I made from Cath Kidston’s book SEW! I have made many of these hearts as gifts for family and friends and everyone loves them.
I copied the heart template from the book, placed it onto some fabric, cut it out and sewed right sides together, leaving a small gap to turn it through. The heart is filled with toy stuffing and dried French lavender for a lovely fragrance. Alternatively, you could fill it with lavender only and place it in your wardrobe, but I like the fullness of using toy stuffing and I hang the heart as a decoration.
I attached some lace around the edge for a pretty decorative effect, and also a tiny flower from my wedding cake! I finished it with a satin ribbon at the top, from which to hang the heart.
This is such a quick, simple and enjoyable make. If you are new to sewing, then this is a great place to start!
