Heart Softie


"The Heart Softie sews up quickly and can be used to cuddle, or as a pin cushion, sachet, or paper weight. It also makes a great gift for your special Valentine. You’ll spend more time customizing the face than you will sewing and stuffing. This is the first of 25 free sewing projects by 12 bloggers in the Little Gifts Sew Along.

Materials: 100% cotton fat quarter in red. Heart Softie pattern (included as PDF cut file). Sewing machine or tools for hand sewing. Basic sewing supplies (seam ripper, pins, etc.). Small amount of Fairfield Poly-Fil. Fabric scissors and paper scissors for cutting the pattern out. Iron and ironing board. For facial expression: 2 – 6 mm black safety eyes, 1 – 13 mm pink heart craft nose, small amount of white embroidery floss with needle, small amount of felt in light color, and sewing awl, or Plaid Fabric Creations paint in assorted blacks, pinks, and whites and paint brush, or Embroidery floss in assorted colors with needle."
