Valentines week - Isas'Art

Anyone for a bit of Patchwork? 
Isas'Art has done a step by step to show you how she made that little heart on her tag. Perfect to attach to a little gift you will offer on the 14th. And a little work of art like this will be kept for sure. 

If you have been following me for a while, you know how much I love tags... I love them as much as cards, they can be sent the same way with a message at the back, can be added to a gift.. whatever the reason you use them for, they can then be kept as a decoration (or collection?)
So for this one, I have been working with Patchwork and appliqué

1 - I cut a heart from a thin card, placed it on the red fabric and traced. I then cut leaving 1 cm gap around
2 - I folded the edges, snipping to the drawn line so that the curves are smoother and glued them with a glue stick.
3 - I sewed the heart on a bigger piece of fabric.
4 - I then sewed this on another piece of fabric, adding some wadding in between : heart - wadding-fabric, all held with a pin to be sewn easily.
5 - Cut closely to the stitches.
6 - Add some Distress ink to age the heart
