Here's a project I did a couple of years back for Better Homes and Gardens. I still like it as much now as I did then. It's the perfect project for a winter afternoon and would be equally at home in a window, across a mantel, or over a doorway. It also lends itself to personal customization and embellishment (If I'd had my way, a few buttons would have made their way onto the hearts). Here's the simple how-to:
Fusible interfacing (to add some weight to the fabric and keep it from fraying)
Iron-on adhesive sheets (such as Therm O Web brand)
Plain fabric shears
Iron and ironing board
Small hole punch
1/4-inch wide ribbon
Apply fusible interfacing to the back of each fabric used. Cut larger hearts with pinking shears and smaller hearts with plain fabric shears. Use iron-on adhesive on the backs of the smaller hearts and fuse to the larger heart. Punch a small hole in both sides of each layered heart and join the hearts together with satin ribbon. Attach longer lengths of satin ribbon at the ends for hanging.
