This was such a simple craft that I put together to match up with a book discussion. The book was a YA book with a romance theme and there was also something involving keys so that's how this came about but the end product is just so cute in general! We all have old jeans we don't wear or, you can easily pop into a thrift store and grab a pair for cheap!
1. I made a heart template with thick paper because I always have difficulty getting a symmetric heart shape! I pinned it to a square of jeans and cut around it, leaving enough for a seam! I did this for 2 pieces (front and back).
3. Pinning the 2 pieces together, I hand stitched all the way along the outside. When I got to the center of the heart I added a looped piece of yarn that I stitched into the fabric to use for hanging later.
4. I stitched all the way around, leaving a small border that I was hoping to look freyed with time. I left a small opening that would give me enough room to stuff the heart with fluff! (You can use actual fill here or pieces of scrap fabric to use up!). I finished off stitched the heart completely shut.
5. Lastly, I added a strand of yarn with 2 fake skeleton keys dangling from it for an additional shabby chic look!
Hey there, I'm Becca, or Rebecca, but not Becky, never Becky, unless you're my family from down south! I'm a simply modern librarian by day and an artist by night. My pursuit is for a simple, happy, healthy, and more fulfilling life! I hope I inspire you to get crafty!
