Materials and tools:

- heart-shaped paper stencil;
- embroidery thread;
- a thick needle with a big eye;
- scissors for cutting cloves;
- stuffing for toys or cotton;
- a pen.
: 15-20 minutes.
It is very convenient and simple to work with the fabric, so you will only get pleasure from needlework. To get started, prepare all the materials for work, as well as cut a piece of fabric, size 15x8 cm.
Prepare a heart-shaped stencil. You can draw it by hand or print the finished version on a printer by copying an even heart from the Internet. Fold a piece of fabric in half and attach a heart to it. Pin the stencil with pins.
Take decorative scissors with which you can cut a heart with sharp edges in the form of cloves. These edges look very original, and you get two identical sides of the heart at once.
Join together two pieces of fabric with the wrong sides inward. Pull the thread into a thick needle and begin to sew pieces of fabric along the edge, starting from the top. The most common stitches will do. Do not sew the fabric completely, leave a small pocket without cutting the thread. We need this hole to fill the heart with a stuffing..
Take a stuffing pad for toys or regular cotton wool and carefully fill your heart so that it takes on a beautiful, even shape and becomes soft. Now you can sew the fabric to the end by tying a strong knot at the end of the thread.
It remains to add a small hanger for our heart. Twine or a dense garden thread is perfect for this. Cut the thread 15-20 cm long and fold it in half. Tie a knot at the end. Try to push the knot through the small hole between the stitches. Since the heart is very light, such a hook will fully support its weight. It remains only to sign your accessory, and a cute bonbonniere with a name is ready!
Such a cute accessory can become multifunctional:
- It can be given to guests as a bonbonniere..
- You can use it as an alternative to banquet cards for seating. Just put the heart next to the guest plate so that he can find his place.
