- Potted plant - Felt & contrasting shade of embroidery thread
- Batting - wooden sticks (I used skewers)
- Paint (in a matching colour) - scissors, needle & paint brush
Step one: Cut out two pieces of felt in the shape of a heart. Begin to sew the heart together with a simple (and visible) basting/tacking stitch (in-out-in-out)
Step two: Before you sew the entire heart . together, put a little batting (stuffing) into the heart. Stitch the heart to close it completely.
Step three: Insert the wooden stick into the heart (you may want to secure it with a bit of clear glue as I did).
Step four: Paint the wooden stick and leave to dry.
