Here is another idea for you to use up some of your old sweaters, and better yet, the scraps from your other upcycled projects.
Here is a tutorial showing you how easy it is to make these upcycled sweater hearts and patchwork hearts. You will have a bunch made up in no time.
|Cut out fabric pieces using sweaters of your choice.|
|With Right Sides Together (RST) sew piece 1 to piece 2. Open that up and place pattern piece 3 (RST) and sew together.|
|If you want to hang your heart, baste a ribbon, jute or thick string on the right side of the heart back piece.|
|Gather the string or ribbon up and pin in the center of the heart, so it won’t get caught in the seam.|
|Place the pieced heart top to the bottom piece (RST) and pin in place. Sew all the way around leaving about a 2″ opening to stuff the heart.|
|Turn inside out and stuff firmly.|
|With a needle and thread, slip stitch opening closed.|
|Sew a bunch up for all your Valentine’s, or just fill a basket full of hearts for a fun holiday decoration!|
