Step 1 - Cut a piece of thick cording (available at a sewing store in the drapery department) to your desired length. Cut a strip of pretty fabric, wide enough to cover the cording when folded over. Using wire cutters, bend and cut a section of a coat hanger to fit as well. Fold over and pin shut.
Step 2 - Sew along edge using a sewing machine and take out pins as you go. Bend it into a heart shape.
Step 3 - Handstitch the ends together at the centre of the heart. You can turn it over so the raw ends aren't visible or leave it as is like mine. I wasn't worried about the raw edges showing as my embellishments will cover it. :)
Step 4 - Finger knit or crochet a cord to wrap around the centre of your heart. Add a crocheted flower or a little handmade ruffle to the heart. Tie it together and hang it up. You are done!
Note - You can use this technique to make pretty much any shape you like. A circle would be really cute too! Please let me know if you make these, I'd love to see. :)
