I didn't need much more persuading as I love hand sewing, although my stitches are never neat, then she posted a really helpful video and my finger was on the pay button before I could stop myself. In fact I made a quick list of things I could make with the heart die and once I got to 5 I realised it was really going to work for me with the added bonus that I already have everything else I needed to go with it.
Here's my 1st attempt.
I used some leftover felt to experiment and make a holder for needles and threads ready for the next project. My stitching still isn't as neat as Jennifers, but it's much improved from my normal free-hand stuff.
The die I used is from Memory Box and is called the Plush Heart Pocket. I ordered it from Crafts U Love and Simon Says Stamp have them too including their own exclusive Easter ones ( I love the little basket!)
YEEEEEEESSS I am back crafting!!!!!!!!!!
