Step 1a: For this hanging decoration, I've chosen to use a pink felt back, a red felt front and a smaller heart nesting in the red piece made from patterned fabric. This is just a suggestion. You could make a heart out of the same color felt back and front, you can choose whether or not to use the smaller heart nestling inside the bigger one and you could use felt or fabric. There are lots of options.
Use the free printable hearts template further down on this page to trace around 2 larger hearts onto some felt fabric for the front and the back and one smaller piece for the patterned fabric on the front. A fabric marker pen is a great tool for tracing out non-permanent designs onto felt and fabric. Here I've cut out enough pieces to make 3 ornaments.
Step 1b: First you need to sew a smaller heart inside a bigger one to make the front of your plush. I've used a patterned cotton fabric for the smaller piece and because cotton frays, I'm using blanket stitch which is good for raw edgings.
Blanket stitch is also my favorite stitch and I use it a lot! You could use a different color felt for the smaller heart and use any stitch you like to sew it on.
Step 1c: This image shows all 3 finished front pieces which have got smaller fabric hearts stitched on top of larger felt ones. Don't be afraid to pick unusual color choices. Who says red and blue or red and pink won't work - they do here!
