Charmed Heart

I just ordered one of the new die sets from Simon's latest Stitched Plush Spring release, and I have a heart to share with you today!

Plush Charmed Heart

supplies: Simon Plush Charmed Heart dies, Taylored Expressions Marshmallow, Avocado, Cherry Blossom, Orchid, and PTI Harvest Gold felts, DMC embroidery flosses, thin silk ribbon, polyester stuffing

This heart die has everything you need to make lots of stuffed hearts.  Besides the flowers that you see today, there are also a small star, heart, ruffled flower, and a scalloped die.  What do I do with this, you say?  These hearts could be Christmas ornaments, gift attachments, and if you add something scented inside, like potpourri or an oil, they could be attached to lingerie hangers to prettify your closet!  Or you could sew a pin on the back and wear it on a coat.   Add a magnet to the back and put it on your fridge!  And you don't have to use felt - use paper and put it on the front of a card.  I'm sure you can think of some other fun uses for it!

When I decided to add the little ribbon bow, I discovered that you could use ribbon for your stitching on these dies, an idea that I will be trying next.  I know I'll be making lots of these now and way into the future!  Thanks for stopping by!

  8. This is charming. I was thinking of Jacqueline's lavender sachets and how you could stuff this with some dried lavender! Beautiful Lin!
