your lonely unpaired socks.
Here is what you will need for the project:
- unpaired coloured socks (or if like me, you only wear black socks get a couple of extra coloured pairs on your next shopping trip)
- heart shaped template
- thread and needle if sewing by hand. I am sure this project could be done with a sewing machine if you prefer
- filler - you can use soft polyfil or, for a more natural alternative, use rice
Once your supplies are gathered, simply cut out 2 heart shapes using the template. Put heart pieces right side together and stitch around using a backstitch (here is a link to PurlBee's backstitch tutorial). Leave a small opening on the side of the heart.
Turn the heart inside out and stuff with filler. Stitch the opening with a blind stitch (I've followed this YouTube video for blindstitch instructions).
Make a whole bunch of coloured hearts to use as decorations or cute Valentine's day gift.
Happy Monday and hope your Valentine's week is filled with love and rainbows.
